Saddened to hear of the sudden loss of Eddie, when he was just a kid I would take him for car rides in my all white, red interior, convertible top Camaro - he would be half in and half out; and to Janet the song by Frank Sinatra "My Way" comes to mind. My deepest sympathy goes out to you and the Osborne Family. Still unable to get the beach sand out of my shoes ......

Big Ed/Dad you are extremely loved and adored by all your family and friends! You are an amazing person and you've been so good to Eddie. He's going to miss you more than words can describe. You are a loving father and a true friend with a big heart. You always treated me like family from day 1. You always looked out for us. I will always remember vacationing in Costa with you and our bike ride on the boardwalk! Things aren't the same without you. You were a big part of your family you gave us all joy. We miss you so much. You've been crowned Margate Beach Legend!
