    I have known Eddie for over 20yrs he has been coming into my deli at Brookshires in Robinson. Eddie would always have a pocket full of candy but he made sure I had a diet soda. Eddie never missed my birthday I would get a case of soda then. Eddie will always remain near and dear to my heart and he is greatly missed. My sincere condolences to the family.
