    Hi Ed, Its the holidays again. This holiday I won't be with you. So many times we had such good things to say during the holidays, but now all the holidays are gone. You were more than a friend. You were a father to me and my best friend ever. Love Loius

    He always had a nice smile and laugh. we watched quite a bit of tennis together,fixed his car,and went to places in N.C.. Sadly,even the nicest people expire...in time. but to have lived and enjoyed life,and having a family around him who cared...in the end...is what really matters. and THAT...he had.
