Fortune Family: I Greatly regret I was unable to attend visitation/Service. My wife Dorothy's Visitation/Service was just before Eddies and family and friends were still with us.
I had been with Eddie on many Funerals during the last 40 years, he was a good, compassionate, member of
the staff at Anderson's . God Bless you in your bereavement.

Cousin Florence & Family -

I remember with great fondness many happy times with Ed as he had such a wonderful sense of humor and always added to the good times in the Smendzuik family. My husband, Bill, also remembers him from our wedding day so many years ago. We always enjoyed your holiday updates! And I deeply appreciate your kindness to my mother Stephany in her later years as well. We appreciated Brian and Heather joining us as we bade her farewell.

You have acted the meaning of family, which is so important to keep alive. May God bless you all as you go forward without Ed's physical presence, but hopefully with many good memories of his life. Our prayers are with you.

Let's keep in touch.

Dear Pat, I remember your father well-in 1976 or 77, my first years of teaching I attended a board function-being a new teacher I didn't know who were the trustees, etc. I was seated at a table behind your father and wanted to dance. So I asked him-everyone at my staff table was shocked that I would ask such a well known person to dance-your father very graciously danced with me-Later when I found out who he was, I was astonished that he would even consider my request-he was a gentleman
My prayers are with you and your family- Anita Renaud
