  • Dickerson family, we are so sorry for your loss. Your family and friends are in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time!

  • This saddens me deeply! I met Eddie while we were both in the hospital (OSU – 2016) and he was such a gentle spirited man who was not only compassionate, but a good friend. He made my time easier and we would always call each other and go for walks outside of the hospital.
    I am so sorry for your loss Colton… he spoke of you often and was proud to be called your dad. He took great pride in you and you were the love of his life! Carry on his name and honor his life by giving back the greatest gift to man – love.

    Praying for each and everyone of you!

    You will be missed Eddie!

    Your friend,
