Kathy, Losing Ed has been one of the worst things in my life. We were together since we were toddlers, living with Grandpa and Granny. Going to school together at Park Street Elementary in old Rockville. As teenagers it was always Ed, Eddie Dean, Ken and me that were always together. Kathy, I don't know how you put up with the four of us. Ed was and always will be my BIG BROTHER Love, Mike

Kathy, my friend and classmate, my sincere condolences to you and your family for your loss. Just remember Eddie will always but in everyone’s heart, soul and spirit . Eddie was such a wonderful person. He was my funny inspirational, motivated classmate. There was not a time that I could remember if someone was having a bad day, he would always find a way to joke with you or make you smile. That’s what I call a true friend. Remember we all were given as a gift from God; loan to us from Him just for a little while. He created us therefore "WE BELONG TO HIM." God has again picked another “Forget-Me-Not” a flower that he called by name so many years before. I cannot say, and I will not say that you are dead, but you are just away! With a cheery smile and a wave of the hand,YOU wandered in to an unknown land. You left us all, because God decided, as to what was given to US as a gift for just a little while; and He needed you to come home. As a few loved YOU here, we will also love you “There”. You are not dead... You are just away! We love you Eddie and we will never forget your Sense of humor and Infectious smile. God has again picked another “Forget-Me-Not” a flower that he called by name so many years before. I cannot say, and I will not say that you are dead, but you are just away! With a cheery smile and a wave of the hand,YOU wandered in to an unknown land. You left us all, because God decided, as to what was given to US as a gift for just a little while; and He needed you to come home. As a few loved YOU here, we will also love you “There”. You are not dead... You are just away!

We have fond memories of Ed and the family when our son was young. They treated him like he was one of their own. Ed always liked tinkering under the roof of a car. He was a kind caring soul. Our hearts and prayers are with you.
