He said that after it was all said and done, he left the there with a huge internal smile and felt a soothing and peaceful love.
“Eddie has been such an inspiration not only to me but to many & will always continue to do so. I witnessed that day, that future wrestlers who never had the opportunity to meet him took the time to stop by and pay their respects wishing they would of had the honor and privilege to have met him & been around him like many of us did! I truly miss you WeeWeeto,” he concluded.
