Eddie Fox remembered
First Friday Letter
The World Methodist Council
As Bishop Ivan Abrahams greeted those attending the service for the Rev. Dr. H. Eddie Fox on behalf of the World Methodist Council, he said he celebrated the life and witness of this teacher, mentor, icon and friend, noting that none was more committed than Eddie. He said that his wise counsel, passion, and razor-sharp wit along with his treasure- trove of stories would long influence the Methodist family. He thanked wife Mary Nell and the family for sharing Eddie, explaining that they were owed a debt of gratitude as many lives had been transformed and enriched by Eddie.
