Dear Lillian and family, please accept our sincerest condolences. Eddie was a wonderful person. I have fond memories when recalling all the great conversations, jokes and words of advice from Eddie. Eddie had a way of making the work hours more enjoyable as we completed the weekly schedule at Cape Breton Beverages. Eddie kept me on the straight and narrow. He set great example and I tried to follow his conscientious ways. He was the most dependable person I ever met. God Bless (you're in our prayers); Charlie and Colleen MacKinnon
