Judy - I just read Eddie's obituary on Niebur's web page. It brought back so many precious memories of us who were a part of Calvary's family. I remember Eddie and your family so well and the witness you all were. I send you and your family my sincere sympathy for your loss. I know the world is just a little bit less bright without Eddie, but thank God for eternity in Heaven. God bless. Sincerely, Sheryl
