  5. Oh Eddie, while I haven’t seen you in many years, I’m telling your spirit aloha and mahalo for all you did to make this life better. My condolences to your family and may your spirit soar over the beaches of Hawaii as you transit to the stars.

  6. I never got the opportunity to get to lnow you very well Uncle Ed. I only remember when you came to visit us in Whitmore and stayed with our family for a few short days. I remember you were what dad referred to as his baby brother and he was so excited to learn you were coming. The anticipation brought back many memories for him which you both took turns shairng with me later. I remember you to be so much like dad. Especially your sense of humor. I set you apart by how you werent as strict as dad was. Thought of you as “the cool uncle.” I was few for words when i was young but I used to wonder what it would’ve been like to be raised with you around us more like Uncle Loy and Uncle Frank and Aunty Kay. You will be always in a good place in my heart. We will make up for lost time one day Uncle Ed. I love you and have missed you long before your time but my heart does not grow weary because you’re reunited with my dad and my other favorite most interesting and humorous Aunty Kay and Uncle lawrence Uncle Frank. Qualities you all had. I can just imagine what heaven is like sitting in a room with you all there! Bs and giggles! Until we meet again.
