His laugh. I can hear his laugh. Soooo many memories.... But it will always be the memory of his laugh that will make me smile when I think of him.

I could not have asked for a better brother than Eddie, firstborn of the Franklin Kids, first to leave. My heart is broken.

Sending my condolences on the passing of a great man. Glenda and Kathy, I thought so much of both your parents. Marie was like a second mom to me and Eddie could always be counted on to make me laugh with his quick sense of humor! I will miss seeing him mowing or washing his car every day when I pass by his house on my way to my office. You were both raised by great examples of Christian parents and you have taken what you were taught and have also been great Christian parents. Love and prayers being sent your way.

To the family of Eddie Franklin. Your dad, grandad, great grandad, and friend to many. My sympathy to each of you. Eddie was such a nice guy. I have fond memories of him and Marie.
