To the Samuels Family:
It is with great sadness we hear of the passing of Eddie. He had a special place in our heart and we enjoyed his company while he was in Victoria playing for the Victoria Salsa. You brought us into your home in Vegas and the love and the stories your family had about Eddie, his spirit will live on forever. May all your memories give you comfort at this time. As a fan of Eddie and the hockey team please know his passing has been hard for us to understand. Rest in peace Eddie.

I will always have wonderful memories of Eddie. I remember all the hockey trips, but most of all the year Eddie went with Bob, Joshua and me to Canada. We had such a wonderful time. I remember when we first landed in Vancouver Joshua & Eddie asked me if you got off in the wrong country because there were so many Japanese people. Grief can be so hard, but our special memories help us cope. Remembering you and your family today and always.
All My Love

Eddie was still in school when I met him through his brother-in-law Scott. I was always impressed with his maturity that manifested in his concern for others. He showed a grace and integrity far beyond his years as a teenager. He was a lover of the game of hockey, and he always left his deep groove carved in the ice. My healing thoughts are with the family and friends that feel his loss far greater than I ever could. I wish you all well in the days to come.

Eddie, you were an incredible brother and hockey player. There are no words to describe how beautiful it was to watch you play hockey. You will forever be in my heart and I will remember all the good laughs and times we had together at family dinners and outings. Love you more than you know.

Eddie was a terrific person, just like his father. I remember listening to Lee talking about Eddie's hockey exploits and seeing the pride in his face. As an adult, Eddie was a classy, friendly and engaging young man. Deepest condolences to all who knew and loved Eddie.
