Condolence from Peg & Jim DeBleyker on February 2nd, 2014 1:49 pm

Our sincere sympathy to all the family. Eddie was a “great guy” – husband, brother, and friend.

Condolence from Jeanette (jeanie) Parillo on February 2nd, 2014 10:15 pm

Thank You Ross for being so helpful yesterday and I have faith that you will take excellent care of my dearest brother Eddie. I cannot express the emotions I am experiencing at the loss of my brother. What’s keeping me going is the reality that I was blessed with two (2) wonderful brothers and I always knew they loved me unconditionally. I’m so very proud of these men and especially their love of family. Brothers Eddie and Tommy will live in my heart forever until we meet again. Rest in Peace Dear Brothers. Blessings to all at DeJohn, Flynn, Mylott.
