My condolences to Inez and family. I did not know Eddie other than thru Inez when she worked with me at the City of Waite Park a few years back. It always seemed they were such a happy couple and had similar interests. She often spoke of his painting and how they would take long walks near their home in St. Cloud. Inez, I know you will miss Eddie. You are such a great lady and I have such good memories of our time together - please take care of yourself. My sincerest sympathy to you.
