    I remember as a child when Janie and Skip first went together what a crush i had on you! Always so soft spoken and so sweet, and soooo handsome! We had alot of fun with the horses and picnics. And Cora was so sweet to the kids, we couldnt help but like her. You leave behind a lot of people that truly loved you. You were that type of person. The world has lost one of the nice ones....Farewell Ed...You will be missed.....

    Another year has passed, I hear it is supposed to get easier. I would like to know when. There are so many milestones this year, Zack is graduating into High School and possibly even Early College, you would be so proud. This year will be my 10th anniversary at work and time seems to go so fast but yet stay still. I love you more and more each day.

    Dad, There is not a day that goes by that I don't think about you. I miss you every day. I know that you are watching over us every day and keeping us safe. You are close to my heart each and every day. I have a necklace that has some of your cremations and I wear the necklace faithfully everyday so that you are always with me. Love you and miss you. I also have the angel that the nurses from hospice placed on your chest when you passed. That stays in my car to keep Zack and I safe everywhere we go.

    Cora and Nancy: I am so sorry to hear about Ed. Since Texaco closed in Beacon and I got transfered to Shell in Houston, Texas I lost track of all the friends in NY. I did not know that you and Ed moved to North Carolina. Ed was such a good friend and having spent so many years working with him night after night at Texaco, well you know. Please accept my sincere condolences I feel like I just lost my brother.
