Our father will be remembered as a devoted and loyal caregiver to our mother as she struggled with breast cancer for close to 10 years.

Ed is the devoted father of Kathleen (Stephen) Kenney and Michael (Susan) Weiss. He is the cherished grandfather of Kristin and Kimberlyn Kenney, Caroline and Samuel Weiss. He is the dear friend of Betty Jean Durante and her family. The family would like to offer their sincere thanks and appreciation to the wonderful staff at Evergreen Commons and in particular, to Hope Reed, for her kind and compassionate care.
