    Eddie was a wonderful man. We had lots of fun growing up. He and his brother were such good people. I pray that these thugs who did such a horrible act spend their lives in prison. They deserve the Death Penalty and that can never bring Dean back but, there is a GOD in heaven that will be their judge. I feel the pain of this family. My brother Buford was murdered in 1979 and the man stayed in prison 7 years. I hope they fry the people over this. God bless this family in such a terrible time. Nobody deserves what they have done.
