Six months ago today my son Eddie was killed in Iraq (September 19, 2007). So much has happened in these past six months, and yet it feels as though I found out about Eddie six minutes ago.
With all the things happening in our country and the constant drumbeat for change from our political candidates, one thing has remained constant. Jesus Christ is faithful to meet our needs before we even know we have them. My family has been greatly sustained by the Sustainer and all of your precious prayers.
I wanted to include all of Eddie’s articles and the three I wrote for him, plus the tribute video for Eddie and the video I made to explain how great our God is.
We love you Eddie!

Eddie may be gone, but he is not forgotten. Though he was surely young when he died, he left quite a legacy.
Love you and Karen,
Thank you Dave this is wonderful. It made me cry tears of love and pride. Thank you so much for keeping our little boys memory and words alive.

God Bless you and your family Dave- you’re always in my thoughts, in my prayers and Eddie is close by too. I know you’re all sad in missing him, but he is still so much here in all what he has begun and that you and others are carrying on with. He’s got to be happy- and I don’t know if he’s aware of what’s going on back here- but if he is, he’s got to be happy to see where his letters and articles have taken us. Be well Jeffers family~ We sure do love and appreciate you!

I Love you Eddie

I’m thankful you were blessed by this post. I too cried tears of joy, love, and pride for Eddie. We were truly blessed by God for giving us such a wonderful boy. Our little boy truly did become a great man.
