Although we have known you only for a limited time, you left us with an endless appreciation of life. Thank you Ed for teaching us your love of life.

my dear uncle eddie, You helped in bringing me home from the hospital, all my life you have referred to my sister and i as your girls, where you had two boys. always referred to me as den e cee. so many great memories, loved our early morning chats sitting on the patio at pilgrim sands sipping our coffee, you and i were the only ones up. you ate burnt pancakes that i made and told me they were just wonderful. visiting around thanksgiving and being pregnant i think you fed me about 5 slices of pie, you welcomed my husband a brother in arms into the family, you cooked for my weddings both of them, you hugged me kissed the top of my head and told me you loved me. i love you too. i know at this time your suffering has ended, i am grateful you are not hurting anymore, forgive me for being selfish in saying i wish you were still here so i could hug you another time. i know the family is waiting for you in heaven i know they will all take care of you like you took care of us. until next we meet...............
