Having known him for many years I know he will be missed by his friends and family. He was a terrific person, and I can only home I become half the mad he was.

Umm, yeah..he was homless. Perhaps should be taking care of their own, rather than sending their folks that "take a turn" in life out of their town. If he was so well liked and respected, why didn't his family take better care to ensure that he didn't die the cold, lonely death he did.

Some of you people are SO judgemental without knowing any of the facts! Sometimes you just can't help someone who won't help themselves. Ed was a great person whose life took a bad turn.......we were all praying and pulling for him.

It is not up to us to judge him or his family. Itís a loss of life and that is not easy to deal with no matter the cause of death. If it were someone you loved, Iím sure you would not want people writing such things about them.

Be careful, I was admonished a few days ago for saying he was homeless!

Eddie was not homeless. He was actually a very successful business owner at one point and his life took a tragic turn. My heart goes out to his children and entire family.
I think he owned a gay bar for a long time - right?

I think the article said the man was 54 yrs. old. Could be he was just taking a walk and had a heart attack. When no one finds you for a few days and you start decomposing, you're not going to be looking or smelling good to anyone.
Start to get bloated being in the water. Maybe one of the women has a water pill we can give him.

You're a horrible person! He was the most wonderful father anyone could ask for. I was 12 when things starting going bad, sorry that I wasn't able to take care of him. There's only so much you can do in the situation he was in. And my mother and his mother DID take care of him until the very end. Shut your mouth unless you know the facts.
I hope for your sake that you never have to be in the position that my family was in.
