Eddie was my solid OU Sooner fan cohort. We talked sooner football over the years, along with farming, politics, and life in general. I will greatly miss visiting with Eddie. Every OU/KSU game Carol and I attended in Manhattan, we ran into Brook and Eddie.

Eddie I will miss you. I have lots of great memories. The private trip you took me on to SW Hamilton County, where I learned all kinds of things. We exchanged books. You and Brooke went with us a couple of years ago to the Battle Canyon site, when the Northern Cheyenne returned to the site. You came to Deerfield and talked to the 4th and 5th graders about he was related to both sides at Battle Canyon(US Army Scout and the Cheyenne Indians.
