Not sure what to say?

On behalf of my sister, Mary Beth, and brother, Jim, I'd like to thank everyone for their kind expressions of sympathy. Whether you knew our dad or not; whether you sent a card, flowers or a donation, whether you posted a message, or expressed your condolences in person, we appreciate your thoughtfulness. Your love and friendship means a lot to us!

Deb, My deepest sympathy and condolences to you and your family at this sad time. May wonderful memories of your dad comfort you in knowing that he is in a better place and looking down on you with love.

It was with profound sadness that I read of the death of your Dad. I know words can be inadequate at times like this. But, may the warmth of fond memories enlighten you to the greatest of times you had together. May your grief blossom into fulfillment of the legacy your Dad leaves behind. My wife, Cindy joins me in expressing our sympathy to you and your family. God bless all of you and may your Dad have eternal rest.
Warmest Regards,

Dear Debbie,
Edwin was a delightful gentleman and I was so happy to have had the privilege to know him even if just for a short while. I am sad that I won't see him in the flesh again or be able to give him a hug... He will always be remembered and I planted some lovely colorful flowers in his memory on Easter Sunday. Here for you my friend. God Bless you for being the best daughter and peace to you and all of Edwin's family that he leaves behind... I have no doubt he's earned his wings!

Dear Deb,
So sorry to hear about the passing of yet another one of the greatest generation. Your Edwin was one of the best--I might not have known him for a long time, but I am so honored that I got to spend a little time with him through you over the past few years.
Looking forward to seeing you this summer.
much love,

A Blessed man wit the Blessings of loving family, friends and a relationship with The Loving, Living God!!! So glad to have enjoyed his friendship andcompany... Steven Cavallo

So sorry to hear.... My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

Mary Beth,

My deepest condolences on the passing of your father. You and your family will all be in my thoughts and prayers.

Dear Debbie,
We are sorry to learn of your Dad's passing. We've heard such wonderful stories about Edwin. We know he will be missed. We will keep you all in our thoughts and prayers. Joe and Bonnie Abel
