    Dear Robin and Kayla, I am shocked and saddened to learn of Eddie’s passing. He was a loyal friend and a true gentleman who I will miss very, very much. His word was his bond and that made him a great man both in business and personal matters. As you know, you were his world. Through our conversations, I feel like I watched Kayla grow up from birth to the beautiful young woman she is today. He was so proud of both of you. Rest in peace, my friend.
