William Edwin 'Eddie' Leroy (1915-2008)

My great uncle Eddie was a hero and a saint, and just before Christmas he went home. 

I knew Eddie through my childhood as a true gentleman and a Christian leader. I got to know him much better while I was at University and in the subsequent years before his health deteriorated and his mind faded. He was a great encouragement to me. I remember his warm reflection on Jesus as Son of God.

Today was his funeral which I sadly was unable to attend.
