Eddie, Gina and family,

We are so sorry for Eddie's father's passing. In this time of sadness, we hope you feel the love and support of a whole circle of friends and family who will be there for you as long as you need them to be. Know that you have both our prayers and our love. We are sorry to be late with our condolences - having Eddie's father and Jim's mother passing so close together delayed what should have been an immediate response. We have made a donation to Bethany Outreach Center as was suggested in Eddie's father's obituary.

lots of love,

Jim and Lonnie
