I had the amazing privilege of caring for Mr. Eddings and his family. My professors always told me that I would find a handful of patients throughout my nursing career that would make an impact on me. I don’t know how he managed to do it, but Mr. Eddings taught me lessons I didn’t know I needed. He was a kind man that loved his wife and family more than anything. I will never forget Mr. Eddings or his loving family. My deepest sympathies in this time of grief and reflection. He will be truly missed.

Very sorry for the family's loss. I will always remember Mr. Eddings as a strong but kind man. He is definitely one of the most morally sound men I've known. With the highest complement, I can say he reminded me of my father. Mr. Eddings and the men of his generation are special and is a loss that cannot be replaced.
