I am truly sorry for your loss. I considered Eddie a good friend and had a great deal of respect for him. After retirement we played golf together on numerous occasions and truly enjoyed those experiences. He will be greatly missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this difficult time.
I am so sorry for your loss. Mr. Dinkins was "one of the good ones" and a mentor to myself and many others. My prayers are with your family.Greg Gilbert
Carol, Lisa, Steve and family: So, so, sorry to hear about Eddie's death. We sure had some great times together when we were young! Thinking of you all in this sad, sad time. Joe & Jean
Carol and family, Eddie was my boss for several years and we really missed him when he retired. I am very sorry for your loss.
Carol and family. Eddie was my district manager for several years and a mentor for me. He was always willing to help a rather inept young manager in our business by knowing when to correct and when to praise. I was in HSV about 5 years ago and was fortunate enough to get Eddie to play a round of golf with me and some friends. I'll always have fond memories of Eddie. I'm truly sorry for your loss and my prayers are with you all.
Carol and family, I am so sorry for your loss. I remember Eddie fondly as a great boss and a wonderful man. Of course when I think of him, it's "Mr Dinkins"....well respected and loved by all who knew him at the phone company. My prayers are with you all during this difficult time.
So sorry for your loss
