From one Irishman to another
An Irish Prayer
You will be missed.
God looked around His garden
And found an empty place.
He then looked down upon the earth
And saw your tired face.
He put his arms around you
And lifted you to rest.
God's garden must be beautiful
He always takes the best.
He saw the road was getting rough
And the hills were hard to climb,
So He closed your weary eyelids
And whispered "Peace be thine".
It broke our hearts to lose you
But you didn't go alone,
For part of us went with you
The day God called you home.
Jeanne, Steve, Katherine, and Sarah Siegel
We were stationed at R.A.F. Shepherd Grove in England, 1954-1958. Our condolances.
Dear Mimi, Katie, Mrs. Hennesy,
I am sorry for your loss but know that you will have endless wonderful memories of a precious father and husband. My prayers are with you. Debbie Paris
Always a delight to talk to. Every time we were at a family gathering Ed would often start a conversation with "the last time we talked, you were building, etc.", always interested in our latest venture. I was amazed at his memory especially as he aged and his health declined. He was such a gentleman and we always enjoyed hearing his stories, which usually were funny and often times there was a lesson to be learned. Dear Ryan has both his grandfathers with him now. Billie, Katie & Stephen, Mimi, Jim & Mike and your families we are so very sorry to hear of Ed's passing. He will be greatly missed. Our prayers are with you.
"The angels are always near to those who are grieving, to whisper to them that their loved ones are safe in the hand of God."
Please do accept my sympathies for your loss. If you need anything, please let me know.
