My Story

A Mother’s Eulogy to Her Son Eddie’s whole life has been so poetic, so beautiful and perfect. God’s mastery is so apparent with Eddie’s story. I do not even know where to begin. At first Eddie beat all the odds. He was a miracle walking through the halls of the hospital. Literally, since three neurologist said he would never walk again. They said he wouldn’t think normally. They also said he said he didn’t have long to live. And soon he was running through the halls putting amazed smiles on the face of everyone who saw him. And the Lord, granted us a year until Eddie’s fight geared up again. We found ourselves rolling with the punches and holding on tight , but then the pain became too great and the Lord called him home. After almost a two year long fight Eddie, gained his angel wings. He’s now resting in Heaven, having served his purpose on earth. We’ve all come together today for him, more aware and full of love and kindness. This I believe to be his life mission, to touch us in ways that will forever remind us of how precious life is and how important love is. I remember right before Eddie was diagnosed a commercial for St. Jude’s came on. It was so sad and devastating, I changed the channel not being able to bear seeing children “like that”…and then “like that”…..became our Life, just……..”like that.” And then I saw that “like that” though scary and sad, wasn’t so hard to bear. The beautiful children with tubes hanging from their chest, noses and stomachs ran through the halls with smiles on their faces so great you wanted to get down and play yourself! Their bravery was amazing, the joy and love overwhelming! And so today I ask that in Eddie’s memory you begin your own fight against Childhood Cancer for all those brave soldiers who battle cancer daily and for all those glorious angels who have gone on before him and who will continue to go on after him Let your protective instincts kick in. Lets fight until a cure is found.
