Ed, I miss our conversations over politics and other controversial subjects. I especially miss your passion when I would state an opposite viewpoint. You never wavered in your beliefs and for that I will always admire you. I miss just sitting with and watching sports. We could sit for hours without saying anything but just knowing you were there always brought me comfort. When you came over, you would immediately call my name and then go outside to find me. Sometimes I would think I would just love to finish cleaning the pool or sweeping the cement but oh I would love to see you trailing behind me talking excitedly about your day. It is the small things like that that I miss the most. I love how much you loved your family and included me as a part of that from day one. You will forever be missed!

My Brother Edward

My brother Edward was not only my younger brother, but my friend. When we were growing up we lived on a dairy farm for about 5 years. So, much of our time was taken up doing various chores like; milking cows, cleaning the barns, and feeding the animals. Any free time was taken up playing sports. As there were few other children in the neighborhood we would go to the trailer park up the street to recruit players, both boys and girls alike. I seem to remember most games ending up in arguments, but it was still so much fun.

Edward, who was strong willed, could be stubborn at times in coming around to others' way of thinking. I remember Edward going to school one year on the first day of school. My parents let him out at the school, but he would not go in. So they left him at the school gate. They then watched him from afar. He walked up and down the street for about thirty minutes had passed.

Edward and I have taken many trips together to racetracks across the country. We both always enjoyed horse racing and playing poker.

I will miss him for the rest of my life.

From your loving brother,

Bob and Deb, we are sorry for your loss. I never met your dad but if he was like you Bob, he is a swell fella. I look forward to seeing him in Heaven. Sincerely, Curtis, Sabrina, Braeden and Chloe Benkendorfer

Uncle Ed, even though I said good bye at your funeral over a week ago now, it is still hard to believe you're gone. I will miss your sweet smile and open arms every time we would see one another. I will miss your siliness and fun sense of humor that was always so endearing to me. I will also miss your saying everything "two times" My nickname, Edward two times (a reference to a Goodfellas character) was truly fitting. I will miss your "How ya doin? How ya doin?" you always greeted me with. You were always so genuinely interested in and asked about my work and my kids' activities. Loved that about you. Mostly, I'm going to miss the fun, family times we've had over the years that will now never be the same without your presence there. My daddy will and does miss you immensely. You were and always will be his best friend. Thank you for all of the love and wonderful memories you've given to me, my daddy and our family. I love you and miss you forever, Uncle Ed
