    Gloria and family,
    I am so saddened to see this. I came to know you both as your mail carrier for 23 years, and often had the opportunity to see one or both of you on my daily rounds. I even purchased one of my mail cars from Roanoke Motors. He was always so pleasant and friendly, and always spoke so fondly of his grandchildren; y’all stayed busy attending their many activities, and you could tell how proud he was of them all. Thinking of you and praying for you all.
    Sincerely, Carol and John Hartman

    Dear Gloria, Doug, Sherry....my heart aches to think of a world without Eddie Sulc. His impact for good in my life is difficult to measure or define, but it was and is surely immense and entirely positive, Eddie was certainly among the finest men I have known.
    We are praying for you all in my home, that our God of Grace and Peace will pour out his love and healing on you every day. I love each of you, and thank God for every memory of Eddie Sulc and his family.
