    So sorry to hear about Eddie’s passing. Our families grew up together and shared a lot of good memories. Was really special to me when I found out we were both drivers with Classic Bulk Carriers and were able to catch up about our families. Prayers for all.

    Tammie, I was so sorry to hear of Eddies passing. He was a huge part of my growing up. All the Wray brothers were. Such a great man and family. They were like home to me. A huge part of Mitchell. I am so glad I got to see you both at the last reunion and had so much with Ed. His personality and sweet humor will be remembered always. Love you.

    I met Eddie 43 years ago, while we were stationed Mannheim, Germany. We played music together, dated together, and just had a good time together. He is my best friend, and I'll miss him.

    Remember Eddie so well from our long ago school days and he and his brothers singing as a trio. His dad used to cut my hair. Nicest people and Eddie carried that tradition on; just a decent and very nice guy. Sorry for your loss.

    I have known Eddie since we were kids growing up at Woodville Baptist Church. He could always make those around him laugh. There was never a dull moment when you were around Eddie. He never met a stranger. He was one of my favorite ppl from my Sunday School memories. I will always remember him as a very dear friend. My thoughts and prayers are with you, Tammie, Delbert, Kim, Joe and Jill & all your families. Love each of you. May God comfort your hearts.
