#1 Old Mt Vernon and UT Austin friendRalph K. Banks 2014-04-25 08:12
I am so saddened to hear of the passing of one of my old friends from Mount Vernon, Texas, Eddie, as we all knew him back there. I have so many great memories of Eddie as we made our way through elementary and high school at Mount Vernon, and even later as we attended the University of Texas at Austin, together. And, I shall never forget Eddie as one of our stalwart high school band members and as a fellow-member of the cast of our senior year high school play. I certainly wish to extend my sympathy to his family in Eddie's loss.
