    Eloisa and Family,
    I am so very sad about Eddie’s passing, however, I am glad to have a few old fond memories of my cousin Eddie when we were children in Mission. I vaguely remember him playing music, but what I really remember is that he was a really nice guy with a great sense of humor. And how could I forget my Tia Nena and Uncle Eddie. I remember Tia was so nice and Uncle zipping around here and there, talking so fast it would make your head spin!
    My family left the Valley in 1970 when I was 13 years old and I am sad that I did not stay connected with family there. I wish I would have had more notice of the funeral because I would have loved to have traveled to Mission to personally extend my condolences and to reminisce with you all.
    With fond memories,
    Daniel Valadez
    Son of Oscar and Gloria Valadez of Mission TX
