    Dear Abby, I was so sad to learn of Eddie's death. I knew him in the early 80's when he did station visits to Station 8. He was always so nice and easy to talk to. He will be missed. May he Rest in Peace. With condolences to you and family, Sheri

    Ed was an extraordinary man. I had the privilege of being his caregiver for over a year. He was a fighter and fought to the very end. Ed will be greatly missed. Thank you Mrs. Bickham for allowing me invest time into Ed's life while being his caregiver. May God bless you and your family.

    Abby, Robin and I were so sorry to hear about the passing of Ed. I was very fortunate to work under Ed as an EMS Officer for many years. He was an awesome guy, a great boss, and one of the best paramedics and instructors I’ve known. Ed always had that great smile and wonderful sense of humor. Luckily I was the subject of just a few pranks like the one Denise mentioned earlier when Ed and John Gilbert were interrogating me under a spotlight. The many Parascopes were educational and a great time because of Ed and the many other dedicated committee members. Unfortunately we can’t mention too many of those stories in this forum (LOL). Ed also taught many CPR classes for me and Robin and we received many, many compliments about his classes. Numerous people were touched by Ed’s life and we are all better people for having known him.

    We are saddened to hear of Ed's passing. May he rest in peace. We have said more than once the YOU Abby have gained your wings for heaven for the love and caring of Ed these many years. Ed always wanted you with him. We have so many memories of gatherings at your pool or ours and various celebrations for birthdays, anniversaries, family reunions, etc. Ed always made the best baked beans. He was a good cook and King of the BBQ. As couples we shared many nights out for dinners. Even went to Hawaii a long time ago. Together we cared for both Harry (Dad) and Fannie (Mother) through the years (as well as our sons contributing to (Fannie's) care . Together we managed the sale of the family home which eventually came together. Now we wish you a peaceful and fulfilling life in the years to come. Ed was your "ROCK" during some trying times. Ed will never be forgotten!! Especially his wonderful smile and humor. Prayers for you both.

    Abby, We are so sorry to hear about Ed’s passing. We’re praying that he’s finally now at peace. We’ll always remember the fun times getting together and sharing a bottle (or two) of champagne with you both at our homes on Fripp Island. It’s been great having you as friends and neighbors. You’re in our thoughts and prayers. Warmest regards.
