    We lost a dear friend/ brother way to early. Ed will be missed more then anyone could even begin to imagine. Ed was the type of person that would do anything for you and if you really knew him you would do anything for him. Everyone that has heard about Ed’s passing will be deeply devastated and in the same breath will remember all the smiles he put on our faces. We will miss you Ed . Our fondest memory of Ed is how he stepped up to the plate and made our wedding celebration so special with his contribution to make our day special . We will never forget that. And even after our wedding, Ed was always a phenomenal friend and confidante. We will miss you in our lives!

    We were saddened to hear about Eddie’s passing. Though we haven’t been in touch for a while we will always remember our high school days together. He was always full of fun and laughs. Don especially remembers hanging out in the hallways and joking around. He was a always a good friend and willing to help out.

    Awww Nan – what a loss!! I am so very sorry. What a guy tho! Many memories, but my favorite: I hadn’t seen you guys for a while & I ran into Ed. I asked how you were & he said “I dunno.” What do you mean you don’t know? “Well, I haven’t talked to her in 3 months.” Me thinking OMG, have they split up!!?? Then he said: “She won’t let me get a word in edgewise!!” That was Ed – just anything to get a laugh.
    May beautiful memories somehow help you get thru this very difficult time Nan.
