    Marcia, Our deepest condolences for the loss of your husband, dear, Ed. What a sweet soul. I remember him so well from our visit to your home in April 2001 .Ed and I are first cousins, but we hadn't seen each other as adults before that time but you all treated us so well and Ed took Hector flounder giggling and that was so very memorable to him. Hearing about all his health problems since our visit was so hard to hear--he suffered so much. I know Ed, and you Marcia, meant so much to Uncle Jess. Our prayers are with you today and always. May Ed rest in peace.

    Marcia, I will continue to pray for strength to get you through the years. Ed was a wonderful person and cousin. He had the kindest heart and greatest sense of humor. He loved you, his family, and friends. He touched people everywhere he went.
