Ed was a good man and great friend. We met at his brother's funeral and have been friends from that time on. My life is richer because of him. My God hold his family close and give them comfort during this time and may they find peace in their hearts.

Ed was such a fun neighbor! I really missed him when he and Mary moved away. We did talk on the phone a few times after he left. Neglect on my part, I'm afraid. Ed was a good man. I will miss him now, more than ever, knowing I have lost my chance to talk to him. I consider him a really good friend. I hope he considered me to be his friend as well! RIP
