Dear Edly,

I just wanted to tell you how very much I miss you and love you! I wish I had been able to tell you goodbye just one more time. I would give anything to have had the chance to hug and kiss you goodbye just one last time. I feel like my heart is breaking and I can't make it stop! I still find it hard to believe you are no longer with us. I know that it has been almost two months since you left us, but it feels like just yesterday that Mom and Dad called to tell me you...

Ed, We did not know you, but love your sister Cynthia dearly. We are praying for your family. We know you were well loved and are missed greatly. May our dear Lord bring you peace and may your family find peace in knowing they will join you in heaven someday.
The Kittleson family

My Dearest Ed,

I still cannot believe that you are gone. My heart aches so much to just see and hold you one more time. I don't even have the words to express the loss that I feel not having you as part of my life any longer. Dad, Mom, Camille, and the rest of the family grieve for you as I do. We all love and miss you so much!!!

I just want you to know that as we celebrate Mom's 85th birthday today, that we will do so with you close at heart. We will all miss your...

Unforgettable Ed. He was just so much fun to be around. I remember him at our last class of '78 reunion when he was laughing, smiling and talking to everyone. He was the life of the party, and his fun loving spirit was a blessing to all who knew him. Ed will be missed. Ed will not be forgotten. To all of Ed's family and friends may you find comfort in God's love and feel blessed with your memories of Ed.

Edlene, Thoughts and prayers for you and your family. We have been out of town.

I was so sad to hear the news about Ed's passing. He always had a big smile and a wave when we would pass each other on the road. What a lovely man, who enriched the lives of all those who had the privilege of knowing him. My deepest sympathy to the family.

like everyone else, we loved coach Ed!!!! he was a fine, wonderful person and just glowed as he spoke about his family- he gave so much to all around him- he will be missed by many- we are so sorry to hear the sad news tonight-

Like so many others have observed, Ed had a radient smile that brightened so many peoples' days and lives. As a fellow Riverwood classmade from the Class of '78, I still think of Ed's capacity for humor and his seeming endless positive outlook on life. This was very sad news, and my condolences to Ed's family at this time of loss.
