53 Fulton St., Hawk Run

Sandy and Family, sorry for your loss . Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

Dear Sandy and Family: Words can never express the sorrow we feel right now. Eddie was one of the BEST! We will never forget all the great times with you and Eddie at all the wrestling matches and tournaments. Our favorite memory was at Pelligrine's during a district tournament. Eddie had a scrapbook that we wanted us to sign. Someone said "Hey - they are not from PO. They shouldn'nt be signing your book"! Eddie said something like "They are my wrestling friends. They are definitely signing my book"! That was dear Eddie - a friend was a friend. He will really be missed.

With caring thoughts and prayers. Zeak and Kelly Gilham

Dear Sandi and family, I am so very sorry to hear of Eddie's passing. He was a sweet and wonderful man. Eddie is my second cousin and even though I didn't see him often in the past years, I thought of him often. He was a delight to know, to all who knew him. May god keep all of you in his loving care, and may Eddie know peace. God bless and heal all of you. Love, Lauria Bell-Hughes

We  will pray for you all to heal from the heartache you are going through.  Love  Greg & Terrie Kachik     (Harriet's daughter) 

We are very sorry to learn of the loss of a wonderful man and a fantastic father. My heart goes out to everyone that was touched by a man who made a difference. Thoughts and prayers to the Myers family.

Sandy just want to send my condolences.  God Bless  you and your family during this difficult time.  I don't know if you know my maiden name of moore.  I was Lois croyle before.   I saw Sue croyle and she said about your loss.   Hugs and take care.

I'm sorry for this loss to the Myers family and our community.  However, I am thankful for the joyful relationships he brought to those fortunate enough to be in his social circles.  Rapid talk, an electric smile and lots of hugs were part of life with Eddie.  His frequent use of the word "love" was backed by unconditional devotion to family, friends and all members of the wrestling comminity.  I'll never forget his involvement in the P-O alumni matches and faithful support at P-O dual meets and tournaments.  Eddie certainly made Philipsburg-Osceola a better place to live.  He was a social magnet and the stories he loved to tell are certain to be passed on to many for decades to come.  I will always remember Eddie with a grateful heart and pray that God comforts the loved ones that he left behind.             Grace & Coach Dave Caslow

Sandy and family,  Barry and I can't begin to tell you how sorry we are for your loss. Eddie was one of the best ! He always  is such a joy to be around.  You are in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. Hugs to all ! Sincerely,Barry and Karen.

 

So sorry for your loss our prayers are with you.

Dear Sandy and Family,

I must have heard the wrestling stories between Eddie and my Dad a million times. Wow what a man and friend. To have shared time with Eddie was a true gift. I will miss him deeply. My condelences to Sandy, the Myers Family and to all who called him "Eddie"

Eddie was truly a special person. We were very close childhood friends and I can honestly say that he made my life better than it would have been. He was so full of life and energy and he always brought humor and fun to all the crazy things we did. He was a tough guy with a sweet heart of gold. Happy trails to you, my blood brother.

Memory Eternal! Vyechnaya Pamyat!

 Words canot express how I feel about Eddie. Always a gentleman, always concerned for others,loved Sandy and his children in any circumstances, and a friend to all he met. Eddie has left a legacy a mile long!!For those remaining life will never be the same, but.... the memories,ohhhh the memories that he left for all to share and cling to  and enjoy will be felt forever.. Im sorry I wont be there as Im in Florida tending to hurricane damage, but my thoughts and prayers will be with you Sandy. My favorite memory for me is of Eddie at the 50th anniversary of wrestling that I chaired. He came to me and gave me a big eddie hug{nearly crushing me as always} and thanked me for the event, He was so happy to be with so many of his friends. Finally a song rings thru my ears now as I write this and I see Eddie at the club,microphone in hand singing "MY WAY" and nobody ever did it better. God bless u all and my peace be with you during the coming days. A friend and eddie relative, I'll miss him.

Sandy, Shelley, and Kelly, I really enjoyed the years I got to work with your dad. We had alot of good times with him.

So sorry to hear that he passed. I will be keeping your family in my thoughts and prayers. I'm sorry I can't make it to the viewing.

So sorry for your loss praying for you and the family

It breaks my heart to see this. What a wonderful man Eddie was. One less shining light around here...

Can't tell you how sorry I am.  He had the best smile and enjoyed life to the fullest. We are in Indiana and unable to be there but our thoughts  are with you all at this most difficult time.
