When I came to Wilson in 1976, Eddie was the President of the Jaycees and I joined the club. Under his leadership, the club was recognized state-wide as one of the truly great organizations under the Jaycee banner. We were instrumental in getting the Jaycee Burn Center in Chapel Hill established by going door to door in selling grape jelly and these proceeds got the ball rolling. Over the years, we would connect at the Elks Club and savor the good times we had. He was a true leader that care about others and for that I am thankful for having known Eddie.

My deep deep condolences to the Ellis family and friends: May you reflect on the precious memories that you have made with your loved one. Losing a loved one can cause so so much sadness and pain of heart. So, I would like to share what helped us when our precious daughter died and later when my precious husband fell asleep in death due to cancer. I appreciated the calls and visits from people from all over. But I also, recall just sitting down and reading different Scriptures and meditating on them. It was so comforting to read that God cares for us personally... (1Peter 5:6, 7). Yes, He cares, He sees our pain. And, He Jehovah God will in His due time do away with All sicknesses & death (Isaiah 33:24 & Isaiah 25:8). He is indeed a God of comfort. Oh, wow He promises the hope of seeing our precious loved ones again (John 5:28, 29) and says where (Psalms 37:11). He always keeps His word. I hope that these few Scriptures were of some comfort to you as they were to me.

A message of comfort to the family. Jehovah God takes no pleasure in the death of anyone-Ezekiel 18:32. Jesus Christ will use his God-given power to reunite families on earth as he did Lazarus. His feelings reflect his intense desire to undo the ravages of death-John 11:39-44. Thereafter no one will ever have to die-Psalm 37:11, 29. More comforting information can be found at jw.org.
