Dear Rena,Janice and Sharon, I am so sad to hear of Ed’s passing….I have such fond memories of him! He always had a spring in his step a smile on his face, and something nice to say that made you laugh. I remember delivering the news paper and tilling his garden for him. He was a Great Man, Husband and Father.

Dearest Rena and family. I am heartbroken today about Eddie’s passing. You two were so special to me when I started working at HLWC. I so loved it when Eddie came in every morning singing an old song. It tickled him that I knew the words to most of them and could sing along. Our special one was ” Blue Skies” and I know he is up there in hose blue skies watching over you and your family and singing with the angels. I will miss him so much. Take care of yourself and God Bless. Love Jan.
