Not sure what to say?

We were very sorry to hear of Ed's passing. It was a pleasure to have known him for the sort time we had together as roommates at Apple Rehab. Our deepest sympathy to all.

From The Torelli Families

Dear Marie and family.
I was so sorry to hear of Ed's passing. He was truly a great man at all times. It was my privilege to work with him at Regan School for many years. The faculty and staff were like family. He will be sorely missed by many.

To the Reilly Family,
I am so sorry for your loss. I taught next door to Ed at Regan School for many years. He was a great educator. I remember his jokes, stories, and great laugh. He touched many lives and lives on in my memory.

To The Reilly Family,
My deepest sympathy on the passing of Ed. He was a true educator and I hold dear our years of teaching at Bishop School where I began my career in education. How fortunate for me to have Mr.Reilly as my Vice-Principal. He touched so many lives. He will be missed.
-Bonnie Mazzaferro

To All the Members of the Reilly Family,

Words can't express the sadness I feel in the loss of my very special Godfather Eddie. He was such a great man and we will all miss him very much. We are so lucky to be connected by that special Reilly- Skerritt friendship throughout the years. We will always have great memories from our days on Pine Street. Now Eddie and my Dad are back together again probably singing that silly song they always sang.

With all of my Love...

The Reilly Family,
I subbed at Regan School and Mr Reilly always treated me as an equal.As I got to know him more,I got to really love his great sense of humor.I can still hear his laugh. Another great man from that Greatest Generation is in heaven.Thank you Mr. Reilly.

" Family of Ed,
It is with deep sadness that I learn of Ed's passing. We were friends and classmates at Fairfield Univ.(Class 1951).
He will always be associated with Joe Skerritt ("Skerritt and Reilly"). They were the Abbot and Costello and the Laurel and Hardy of our class. Oddly, I have just returned from Waterbury where I attended the funeral of my sister, Margaret Clifford. I will remember him always. May he...

Dear Mike,
My heartfelt sympathy to you in the loss of your father. Please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.
