    Eddie, it was always a pleasure talking to you about life and about trains. You are a good man and I will miss you. I know its going to be hard for you in heaven because you wont need to walk and they will now call you the flying guy. No moss ever grew under your feet. God Love you as well all do.
    Rest in Peace my friend.

    I never met him, but I hear from his daughter, Samantha Harrington, that he is a good man. She misses him dearly and I really wish I could have met him.
