We were blessed to know Ed as our neighbor for the past six years. We enjoyed meals and visits together, and learning of his full life. His friendship, ready smile, and generosity will be missed by all who knew him. Our sincere condolences to his loving family and many friends. Ed was comforted, as we are, by God's Word, to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. And so Ed is.

To the family, I am so sorry for your loss. May you draw strength in knowing the fact that God is the creator of life, and he is capable of restoring life to someone who has died. Acts 17:24. 25.

RIP, Ed. I will miss his handshake whenever we would visit Shiloh UCC. He really made you feel welcome.
