Eddie was a special uncle whose warmth, smile, and wit will be missed. I'm sure you are singing, telling jokes and laughing along side my mom, grandma, grandpa, and Lydia. Your absence creates pain for us left behind, but only until we meet again in heaven.

I grew up with Eddie in Skellytown. He was one of the sweetest, nicest young men that I ever knew. He was also so much fun and just so funny. Everyone always enjoyed having him around. I'm sad that I didn't have the chance to know him as an adult. My condolences and prayers go to Eddie's family. I know he will be greatly missed.

When I became an exchange student in 1990 arrangements were made for me to go to Amarillo untill (due to circumstances) my host family suddenly had to move out. Just days before my departure I heard this news and it gave me a feeling of being lost, who would have me now? The Mayfield family came to my refuge. Eddie saw my picture in the newspaper and suggested to offer me a home for a whole school year. A whole year, not knowing who I was. Extraordinary. The Mayfields unconditionally welcomed me in their home and family. Loving kindness is what reminds me of this period in which I got to know Eddie better. I remember him as a witty, quiet and loving guest father. I am filled with grief he passed away much too early. He will be missed especially by Carol, his kids and grandkids but also by his Dutch daughter.
