    I have known Edward since I was 9 years old (50 years). I was a very close friend, along with my family. Other than being close friends I was also employed by Edward at Moores Drafting Service, Goldsboro NC. Edward and I along with all of my family had many good memorable times. I always knew Edward as a very compassionate and loving person. I am very sad to learn of Edwards passing, I never knew he was sick, I would of really wanted to tell him bye. May you rest in Holy precious peace. You will always be loved and never forgotten. 212 Calvin Lane Goldsboro NC 27530
