  2. To the Masone Family,

    It’s always a shock to see former classmates
    names in the obituaries!

    Eddie and I were friends at McCall Junior
    High School and Winchester High School
    back in the late 1960’s until graduation in 1971. We had many a fun time in class, joking around in the cafeteria, and walking home along the train tracks (I lived on Harvard Street).

    Very sorry to hear of Ed’s passing.

  3. Eddie, you are one of my best and truest friends and also one of the toughest guys I’ve ever known. As a Christian, I am confident that you have found peace and are being well taken care of. I have always been proud to call you my friend. Last night I opened my and Catherine’s wedding album and showed several pictures of you, as one of the ushers, to my son. He remembers meeting you when he was four and the candy corn you gave him.

    More than just the NFL games, the Risk games, the rides down the parkway in the old blue Vega, the meat cleaver in the telephone, the Crown Royals and Seven with shrimp, parties at the cliffs, V’s cellar, and numerous other places, I will always have cherished memories of the conversations and the laughs. I love you, pal.

    -Bruce
