Not sure what to say?

i had the privilege of knowing Ed through MIller Manufacturing's softball team. he was an excellent player and had a great desire to win. i think it was his marine corps training; however, he was also a gentle, loving person who will be fondly remembered.

Was shocked to read about this in this morning's paper, too late to make the funeral. Please know that the family is in our prayers. May God give you peace and comfort in knowing that he is in the arms of Jesus at this very moment.

Dear Elsie and Dale's children, Patsy, Jean, Violet, and Linda, I am so sorry to learn of his passing. My heart is broken for you. I have nothing but good memories of my time of having known Dale so long ago. I know that he had to have been one of the greatest husbands and dads the world has ever known. He was always such a kind and considerate man. And I know he loved his Lord and his family beyond all else. I know how much you will miss him, but I also know that there is great peace...

My prayers are with you. Will be in touch soon.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the family at this time. I will remember all the good times we had. I am glad I got to know Ed over the years and will always cherish the memories. I know he lives on through each of his children and grandchildren. Cherish the memories you have and know the suffering is over and he is at peace.

To you all, I'm so sorry to learn of Ed's passing. It was always such a pleasure to see him on my visits to Richmond. I remember him at the kids games and how much he enjoyed watching them. He will be greatly missed by all of us. It was an honor and pleasure to have known him.
