My husband grew up with Eddie and his brother Bobby in Ora In. After Ron and I got married I met his beautiful mom Nina and his beautiful wife Yonnie. I loved going to their house drinking coffee. I have a lot of Great memories of them. What a wonderful family. I think often of them all. My prayers are with Yonnie, the Boys and the rest of Eddie's family. Love from the, Riddle Family
