We are so sorry to learn of Ed’s passing. He was always there for us and other neighbors more than willing to lend a helping hand. His Christian values and how he lived his live were inspiring. Our life was better because of Ed being part of it. We will miss him. Peace and love to his family in their time of grief. We look forward to seeing you one day again Ed. Mike & Cathy
My Mom would always call him Eddy, her baby brother. She was so fond of him and they had a very close relationship that was only separated by the miles. I'm sure they will reconnect now that they are both in heaven watching over us. I always enjoyed his sense of humor and honesty, I will miss him.
I am so sorry for your loss of such a precious loved one. Please find comfort in knowing that Jehovah hates death; he views it as an enemy. (1 Corinthians 15:26) He has a longing to conquer that enemy, to undo death by means of the resurrection. He yearns to bring back those who are in his memory and to see them live on earth again.—Job 14:14, 15.
May his Soul and energy, continue on to his next purpose in this universe, forever living on in your heat and mind...God's Spead
As I try to process that Ed won’t be here for future memories, I have many past ones that comfort me. I hope everyone can find peace and comfort during this difficult time in remembering all the positive ways Ed (dad) effected and improve our lives. I will miss the fun and joy I had at our garage sales and I already miss the Christmas grasshoppers.
Elaine and family - I am so sorry to hear of Ed’s passing. May the memories you have bring you peace. Grief is the price we pay for loving someone. Blessings to you all.
My sincere condolences to the entire family and to all of Ed's friends. I fondly remember meeting Ed before he was married to y cousin Arlene when I was about 6 years old. I will always remember him as being extremely kind, caring, soft spoken, and with a gentle spirit. Back when he was a teenager, he always had a smile on his face at family gatherings. I remember his bliss when each of the girls were born and how he lit up in a room when he was with them. He will be missed by all. Ed and the families will be remembered in our prayers and thoughts. Laurie Weber and John Baldassari
