Not sure what to say?

Our deepest sympathies go out to Ed's family and our deepest gratitude for those family members and friends who have made memorial gifts to the Northshore Schools Foundation.

His legacy for life long learning will live on in the lives of our students.

In loving memory,

Ed and I were high school classmates and opponents on the soccer pitch. He was a tremendous opponent in soccer and a better friend in high school. I pray for his family in this time of deep sorrow. I am still struggling with his passing, although we had not maintained contact over the years. Ed always had something funny to say in any situation and I am sure it would not be different now. I will remember him with a smile, especially when I am playing/coaching soccer.

To Ed's sister Vida, I will never forget you attending my father's funeral with Ken 30 years ago. He passed away on the same day, November 12th. He was also 49. The memory of your kind gesture has stayed with me all of these years. I was so sorry to hear of your brother's passing. He sounded like an amazing man. I also live in the Northwest and it sounds like he took full advantage of everything it has to offer. My deepest sympathy to you and Irene and the rest of your family. May...

My deepest sympathies go out to Mr. and Mrs. Praitis, Vida, and her sisters. I was so sorry to hear of Ed's passing. May memories of him comfort you all during this very difficult time.

Eddy, my dear sweet nephew, the very best of the very best; we will miss you so very much.
May his exemplary life help us overcome our grief.

Ed was my cousin's husband. We spent quality time with him and the whole family last summer. He was nothing but loving and caring, about his kids, wife, and the world around him. He was the epitome of the open spaces of Nebraska and the wholesome Pacific Northwest: down-to-earth, authentic, funny, unpretentious – and not to mention smart. He clearly enjoyed working hard – at his paid job at Microsoft and in the fun stuff he did. His kids inherited those traits from both parents, and that...

Janine,Erik and Karl, Uncle Bert and his family in Canada and the Cayman Islands send you their deepest sympathies on Ed's passing. Please accept our condolences.

My name is Bob Naujokaitis and I grew up with Ed at both St Anthony Church and at Bryan High. Ed and I ran for Sophomore Class Pres. and Vice Pres. together on a "Lithuanian Ticket." Ed was a wonderful friend and will truly be missed. I had just visited with his mother a few weeks ago and asked her to tell Ed hello from me. I hope she did. I lost a good friend. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

I'm so sorry for the entire Praitis family. You are all in my thoughts and prayers....may God give you strength in this difficult time.
