I was most fortunate to have known Eddie Laveri from high school days and in future associations. Eddie was an outstanding person and friend in so many ways. A very kind, considerate and thoughtful gentleman. I am indeed grateful to have known him and I know he will be greatly missed by his family and all who knew him. May he rest in the peace of Christ.
Our family wishes to thank all who attended the service for our father and for those who contributed to the Hospice of the Piedmont. We will miss our dear father but know he is in the arms of the Lord and with our mother.
