Uncle Eddie, the last of the funniest trio of brothers the likes the world may never know again! When uncle Eddie, uncle Pat and my father got together and told stories of times gone by and growing up in Greenock during the war, that uncanny ability to laugh usually at each others expense. It was a given that anyone within earshot could not avoid joining in their contagious laughter that immediately filled any size room. I know he is up there right now with his siblings,all the wives and parents most (likely singing and acting out "Me and my shadow " ) making heaven a far funnier place today than it was yesterday. RIP uncle I tip my hat and a Drambuie in your honor.

So sorry to hear about "Uncle Eddie". I can still remember the first time that Angie took me to Pat's to meet the aunts and uncles. Eddie made me feel very comfortable and welcome as a Gallacher "wannabe". As it turned out, having been involved it construction in Hamilton myself we had some common interests and knew some of the same people. I feel proud to have known him and will remember Eddie as a kind, considerate and carring individual always ready to lend support and a helping hand when and if needed.
