I just read that Eddie Seth passed away in 2015.  This makes my heart cry as I loved who Eddie was in High School.   Eddie and I were in homeroom class together in 10th grade.  We sat next to each other and  I remember him being such a sweet quiet person.  I always loved talking to Eddie.  I am so glad that he married his wife and she was the love of his life as I know this brought him great happiness in his life.  I also am thankful he had children and his family.  Eddie will always hold a soft spot in my heart as he was so very sweet.  I am so sorry for his families loss.  I also want to share something funny when I was in 10th grade and sat next to Eddie... I had such a school girl crush on him.  But Eddie was shy and so quiet but I did make him laugh.  He and I would end up talking about the Mustang my father gave me to drive in High School.  I also enjoyed Harley Davidson Motorcycles.  Would love to hear from his wife to let me know about him when they were married in life.  I always enjoyed Eddie...
