“I am so sorry to hear about Eddie Samuels, I am deeply saddened by his passing. We were inseparable childhood friends. As soon as I heard, countless memories of such an amazing person ran through my mind. I would not be the person I am today if it wasn’t for Eddie being a part of my life. I’ve revised this email countless times as the more memories I try to type the harder it is for me. Eddie was without question the most fierce competitor and even fiercer friend that I have ever known. I could write hundreds of pages of the great times we shared together and as a family.” — Travis Hackney, Las Vegas hockey teammate of Eddie Samuels
