My deepest sympathy to Juanita and all of Eddies family. I know he was met at Heavens gate by his pals, Tom Eisha and Don Born. Lifelong friends. Eddie and Don always exchanged phone calls on their birthdays, which were only 3 days apart. After Don's passing, Eddie called me on his birthday. I will miss not hearing from him and the updates of his family. RIP dear friend.

My condolences to the family on Mr. Krilich’s passing. I didn’t have the honor of knowing Mr. Krilich personally, but I do know his daughter Karen as a co-worker. If she is an example of his love and wisdom instilled in his children, then he has left a wonderful legacy.
