Dear Paula and the entire Werner Family, we are so saddened to hear of your loss. I only met Edward once or twice but all you need do is look at his children to you know the kind of man he was. I never knew he was a social worker, what a special, special man. Please know all of you are in our thoughts and prayers and take comfort in knowing this is not goodbye, it is merely so long. Until you see him again in glory, lean on each other and your memories.

We love you Paula & Jay.

With deepest condolences,
The Seago Family
