My deepest condolences in the loss of your husband and father. Ed was such a good, kind and fun person to be around. I first met and got to know Ed at Bob-O-Link golf coarse when I was a teenager working there. We all looked forward to him coming in the pro shop and talking and laughing with him. What a great example he was for the love of life. Our lives would be better if we could all see and feel life as Ed did. Prayers for strength, peace and comfort in the days ahead. May Ed Rest In Peace! I will miss you my friend.

Pat, we only knew you and Ed for a few years compared to your lifelong friends but we have considered you both great friends. We had the most fun with you. Ed would make us laugh so much and had the greatest stories. Our group lost the life of the party when Ed could no longer join us. We have missed him so much and hope you can now find peace and comfort in your wonderful memories. We regret we can't be at his Celebration of Life but know we will be thinking of you and your family. We love you, Mike and Patti Edwards.
