~~~~The MAN - The LEGEND ~~~~
US ARMY AIR CORP 101ST AIRBORNE
He was a wonderful Christian, son, brother, husband, father, grandfather, uncle, nephew, and friend to many. He proudly served in the United States Army. He was special to so many but to me he was not only my favorite uncle but he was my HERO ... here is just one of MANY wonderful memories I have of my uncle [to all my cousins he was either "dad" or "Uncle Eddie" but to me and my parents' older daughter he was always "Uncle Pie" ... my mom never knew why her older daughter at two years old started calling him "Uncle Pie" instead of "Uncle Eddie" but my sister was presistant and no matter how many times my mom tried to correct her and get her to say "Uncle Eddie" she'd just get frustrated and scream "NO, Unc Pie! Unc Pie!" so my mom finally gave in and said fine "Unc Pie" it will be and it was from then on … skipping forward about 30 years; we are having a family reunion at my uncle's house in South Carolina and I called my uncle "Uncle Eddie" because all my cousins and their kids were calling him "Uncle Eddie" and I didn't think it would matter - boy was I wrong, my uncle turned around and looked at me as if I'd cussed at him and he said, "What did you just call me?" and without skipping a beat I said, "Uncle Pie" and with that beautiful, uplifting smile on his face he replied, "That's what I thought I heard, you might be grown but I'll always be "Uncle Pie" to you and don't you ever forget it." ... that really touched my heart because it wasn't until then that I realized how much it meant to him that me and my sister had always called him "Uncle Pie." My Uncle Pie was one of my mom's big brothers and the one she was closest to while I was growing up. If you look at the photos to the right you will see a picture of my mom and her brother, Eddie -- they were extremely close .. growing up he was the only father figure my mom had. He was my hero growing up and he will ALWAYS be my hero! (I just threw this brief bio together while I am working on a nicer one).

If tears could build a stairway
and memories a lane,
We'd walk right up to Heaven
and bring you home again.
No farewell words were spoken.
No time to say good-bye.
You were gone before we knew it,
And only God knows why.
Our hearts still ache in sadness
and secret tears still flow.
What it meant to lose you,
NO ONE WILL EVER KNOW.
