    Eddie Beagles and the staff of Legacy Cremation & Funeral Services

  2. I’m so glad to have had the chance to work with you for so long, was my pleasure. You deserved a longer retirement time. I’ll miss the news/current events banter with you, you were always on top of it.
    Rest in Peace friend.

  3. I hate that you didn’t get to enjoy retirement longer because I know you looked forward to it for so long. You were truly one of the most genuine souls and I’m so grateful that you were apart of the Duncan family for so long. Rest easy
