Eddie Buggs 12/18/2000 - 12/28/2013 (revised)
A tribute to Eddie Buggs. We love and miss you baby!
I made this tribute for the family and friends of Eddie. I knew him
personally. His mother Tiffany was and still is my best friend. We have
been through many things together but this is by far the worst. Eddie was
just 13 years old when he died of brain and spinal caner just a few days
after his birthday and chirstmas. He was an incredible athlete as you will
see, with insane interceptions and touch downs, he was definitely a prodigy
when it came to sports. He was also great at basket ball, baseball,
skateboarding, and everything else. He was an amazing soul as well. He
could always light up a room. With his beautiful hazel eyes and amazing
smile, he was able to make anyones day brighter. I remember when him and I
first met, he was 2 years old. He could speak full sentences just as good
as a 7 year old. I always told his mother that he had a very old soul. He
wasn't just an amazing athlete, he was smart, funny, caring, kind, and
everything else you would ever want from your child.
Eddie was born and raised in Sheraden (west end) of Pittsburgh but a few
years ago his mother moved to Florida where he blossomed into a beautiful
He was loved by so many people. I have never seen such out pour of support
and dedication to someone in my life. Eddies wish was to always be featured
on ESPN and tons of us friends and family and even strangers did everything
we could to start a movement to #geteddingonespn.... Yesterday Jan-14-2014
his wish came true! ESPN featured him as the number one interception on
their play backs. He had fans in the room holding up TEAM EDDIE, Team
BUGGS, signs. It was truly amazing to see. I know he is looking down on all
of us and grateful for everyones help.
I hope and pray... in fact I KNOW, that Eddie will not be forgotten! He
will always be in our heart and we will continue to keep his memories and
To Tiffany, I love you with all of my heart and I am here!
To Eddie, continue to watch over you mom and keep being amazing. We love
and miss you every day!
