Our deepest sympathy to you and your family. You have been in our thoughts throughout week. Losing a parent is difficult, but he will remain with you in the "Remember when....?" stories you all will continue to keep alive.

My sincerest and most heartfelt sympathy to Anne, and all of Ed's children. Although I only knew him for a few months, I indeed count it as a privilege. His beautiful smile is amongst some of my cherished memories. May peace and comfort be yours throughout this difficult time knowing heaven as gained another angel. God bless you all.

Mom (Aunt Colette) wanted me to tell you how sorry she is to lose her big brother who was so wonderful to her throughout her life. Even now, when she talks about Uncle Ed taking her to see Frank Sinatra for the first time she still glows with the memory! We are saddened by his passing but so glad we were able to spend a few hours with him and all of you at his 90th birthday celebration. May happy memories and the strength of your family bond help you during this difficult time.

Dear Peggy,
So sorry to hear about your loss. To reach 91 your dad had a very full life, even though it is never easy to lose a loved one. Take care and Please extend our condolences to your family. Love Carol, Hiram and Jacob

There were so many great times our families spent together. Those times will be in our hearts forever. Rest in peace Uncle Ed.

Ed was the only father I had as an adult and he was the best father -in-law anyone could ever have. He was always there for me. Losing Ed is very much like losing my dad all over again. I take great comfort in believing that we will see each other again.

Brian, the more I read about your father, the more his life reads like that of the protagonist of his own novel: a man whose achievements and influence will not be forgotten, an inspiration to his family and friends, and one of those lucky few who was able to write his own story. I regret that I won't know him in person but look forward to hearing him live on through your stories and anecdotes.

Prayers to the McGuinness from the Castleberry family, Josie & Kathleen.
I remember as a kid, roller skating around the neighborhood and visiting Ed & Mary with my parents on the weekends. They always welcomed us into thier home as part of the family. Good times, laugh,and family fun was had by all. I was very touched when Ed drove out to my dads memorial 10 years ago. It was a wonderful geture and shows what how Ed was truly a wonderful man.
