Eddie was kind and always friendly. Our junior year, the Drama Club won districts, regionals and went to state championships. I remember the music, the play and Eddie so clearly.  Eddie drove us everywhere we went.  States were held in Charlottesville that year.  To get there he drove over a foggy mountain at night.  There wasn't a sound as he guided to the other side. You could not see through the dense cloud, someone asked if he was okay. He said we're cool! I remember being so afraid.  Then as the bus burst out of the fog we erupted into cheering and applause.  I can still see his smile as he turned around the bus stopped and safe.  Our last reunion Eddie and I told my husband about that and other treasured stories of the thespians.  My sincere condolences to all who loved him
