Thinking of all of the Haakinson clan during this time. Keep your memories alive of Ed during his younger years. Carol and the Haakinson's were all so patient in the care you gave Ed over the years. Take care!

Eddie and I were so close as kids and shared our lives with stays at each others homes. I think of him often. The end has been so long in coming and my heart and prayers go out to Carol and family all the Haakinson cousins who so lovingly cared for him. Ed rests in peace.
