Not sure what to say?

Jimmy, Stacy, Sheri, and Jeff,
I just learned of Ed's passing a few minutes ago. I am so sorry and send my sincere condolences. Ed and his Mom and Dad were always so good to me when I was young. I will always regret not knowing my father's side of our family better. It was very difficult because of my father's condition. Every time I saw your Dad/Brother, he would always talk to me and pay attention to me no matter what else was going on. His Mom was the best. The last time I saw cousin...

Ed was such a unique and special person with a very charismatic charm. He had an incredible sense of humor which I will miss most. But I will also miss his words of wisdom and his true friendship. He was loved by all who knew him.
Rest in peace dear friend, you will me dearly missed.

(I keep hearing his "Valter and his shinny new boots" joke in my head!)

Ed was the best father a guy could ask for. Never forced his way but, would provide guidance and and help me walk through any issue no matter how big or small. He was my best friend from my birth to his last day. Although there were weeks that would go by at times and I didn't carve out the time to see him, work was in the way, off doing this or that, I am fond of all the trips and adventures we took and all the meals we shared. He was truly bigger than life to me. I will always love him and...

I first met Ed through my father and we
were friends instantly. He enjoyed my intellect and wit as I did his very much! We had many and interesting conversations. I was very saddened by the loss of my friend. I will miss him dearly. My prayers and thoughts to his family.

I met Ed in Sarasota. He was a classy man and very intelligent. Always had great conversations and very kind. My thoughts and prayers are with Ed and his family! God bless and I will try to make it to the service to pay my respect.

Ed, may you Rest In Peace. I'm sure even now you are entertaining everyone around you with your jokes and quick wit. It was a pleasure knowing you here. Hope to see you again. May God bless your family with peace and love.

I had the pleasure of working with Ed for many years and always enjoyed our conversations. My Thoughts and Prayers are with the entire Olsen Family during this difficult time. RIP my Friend.
