    To the Gault family, Karen,children, grand children, and brothers, I was saddened to learn that Eddie had passed away. I have known him all of his life. He was a friendly and happy guy. He was always kinda quiet and a little shy until you were around him for awhile. Was a hard working man who loved his family very much. Just a few weeks ago some friend had lunch at the Silver Bay seafood in Simpsonville. May God make smooth the path before you in the days and months ahead. I along with many others will sorely miss Eddie. God bless each of you.

    Karen, I am so sorry to hear this. Prayers for you and yours.

  • I recently heard someone say “We are related because of blood but we are family because of love”. I hope that all of you truly know I count you as family. You have long been in my thoughts and prayers as I have watched each of you fight this battle with Eddie. Please know I am here if you need me. May God bless and keep you all.
