Uncle Eddie has always treated me wonderfully as a newer addition to the Harrington family. He has also been wonderful to my 2 young sons. I have the upmost respect for Uncle Eddie as he is truly an outstanding person and we will miss him greatly. You don't see too many people as fair, loving, and accepting as Uncle Eddie.
I worked with Ed as my supervisor down at the gas company in the mid 60's. It was my first job. He was kind and patient. Many fond memories of Ed. I will remember him in my prayers.
Our prayers are with Aunt Theresa and the family. We last saw Uncle Eddie about a year ago when they joined us for dinner at our Rochester home. Aunt Pat, Bill , and Father Bob joined us with our grandson Tyler. Eddie shared with us some of his experiences with the Marines -I think Tyler was impressed! Our families have shared many memories over the years. We'll miss him.
