"Death is not a period that ends the great sentence of life, but a comma that punctuates it to more lofty significance. Death is not a blind alley that leads the human race into a state of nothingness, but an open door which leads man into life eternal. Let this daring faith, this great invincible surmise, be your sustaining power during these trying days."

Martin Luther King Jr., Eulogy 

Memorial Tributes

"It is impossible to condense 58 years of friendship into a short tribute.There was no better friend then Sweens ! As one of my friends said "...the people you introduced Ed to liked him as much as you did! "  I just wish I could spend one more weekend with him or even one more phone call with each of us ending the call with telling the other " love you!" You will be with me forever Sweens...thanks for all the great memories !!"

"I wish I had just one more time with Ed to tell him how proud we are of him.  He was such a humble, generous soul.  We had no idea the impact he had on so many until the tributes came pouring in after his passing. To us he was a lovable, funny, dependable brother and uncle who left us much too soon and who will be greatly missed."

"Sweens was the best, if he was your buddy, he brought his moral compass and zest for life into your heart. Unassuming and perfectly humble, hs was a beacon of principles and values that changed so many lives for the better. Eddy's dry, creative sense of humor defined how special he really was, it was never at any ones expense. Just ask Freddie Lopez! I love you and miss you brother."
