  1. Linda,
    Sometimes there are no words but those spoken in the silence of the heart; this is such a time.

    I believe that God answers our prayers always, not always as we pray that He will, but nevertheless always.

    Ed was a dear Christian friend and we will miss his presence in our church group, but he no longer belongs to us but to God.
    He was a gift from God that came into our life for a season, and will be remembered fondly forever.

    Lord Jesus, we thank you that you love Linda and that you are in control of everything that happens from our first breath to our last sigh, and that you will care for Linda in the days that lie ahead.

    Frank & Lynda Coleman

  3. We are remembering today and always, a man who was a grandfather every kid would be blessed to have in their lives, a good and loving man to his entire family and to everyone around him. We will miss you Ed and all the jokes and teasing you did with us all. Our prayers are with the entire Evans and Pancer Family,

    With our Deepest Sympathy,

    Randy, Gwenda, Nick & Aimee Muchow

  4. Dear Linda,
    We grieve with you today with the loss of Ed, but rejoice that we know he is with the Lord. What blessing and peace that brings to your family and to all of us. We will see him again!

    We will continue to pray for you and your family that God will give you strength for the days ahead. We pray that God will surround you with His Presence in a special way and you will feel His arms wrapped tightly around you.

    Job 19:25-27

  5. Dear Linda,

    We are grieving with you over the loss of the earthly presence of dear Ed. He was such a friendly, lovable man and he will be much missed by all who were given the privilege to know him in this life. We rejoice that he has passed through the gates of splendor and sees his Savior face-to-face now. May His peace be your peace; may His strength be your strength; and may His love comfort and sustain you in the coming days and months. Our Father loves you, Linda. His arms will not let you go.

    Covering you in prayer,
    Stuart and Teresa Mosher

  6. Linda, We are grieving the loss of such a dear friend and great man. Ed was one of the sweetest people we have had the privilege to know. He will be missed by so many of us. Ray said he will miss the great golf adventures Ed shared with him. Ed is in Heaven now, waiting on all of us to follow. He is no longer in pain and I know he is rejoicing with the angels around the Heavenly Throne. Cast all your burdens on God and He will sustain you at this time. God loves you and your family and may He bring you comfort at this time that only He alone can do. God will take care of you, Linda and your family; find peace and rest in this assurance. Ray and I love you and are here for you anytime.

    Ray and Glenda

  7. Linda,
    Of course, we can’t even begin to express our sorrow for your loss, but know if we can be of any assistance, we are here for you.
    We are going to miss Ed, his humor and that funny smile he always had when he greeted you at church.
    You know, I don’t think we ever lose our husband or wife to death, those are the people we really love, the people we have shared the ups and downs the joy and the heartache of a life time.
    I think they continue to participate in our thoughts and decisions even though they are not physically here, their love leaves an indelible imprint in our memories.
    Our prayer for you, Linda, is that you would be strong and courageous, remembering GOD’s promises in his word. One of our favorite scriptures is Isaiah 41:10
    “Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” Isaiah 41:10
    Our friends are like the pillars on your porch. Sometimes they hold you up, sometimes they lean on you, and sometimes it’s just enough to know that they are standing by.

    Our Prayers and Blessings are with you.
    Betty and Dave Rhule, Sr.

  8. To The Family, I am truly sorry for your loss. May the God of all comfort and tender mercies sustain you during this difficult time. (2 Corinthians 1:3,4)

  13. Dear Linda and Family,

    During this time of profound loss, please know that are hearts are breaking with yours. We will always remember the fun times our families have shared, Ed, such a good man, remains a wonderful example of grandfatherly wisdom. He taught us so much about loving and encouraging our own grandchildren.
    We continue to pray that our merciful Father will wrap His loving arms around each of you bringing peace and comfort in the days ahead. And as our little grandson has said, Granddaddy Ed is in Heaven making sure we are all okay.”

    Our deepest sympathy,
    Linda and Pete Deschner

  14. Linda, I told Eddie on the phone the other day that I loved him. His response was, “I love you too” Sandra and I send our love out to you and your family. If Eddie sent you a letter from heaven it would go like this: I’m writing this from heaven.
    Here I dwell with God above.
    Here, theres no more tears of sadness;
    Here is just eternal love.To my dearest family, some things Id like to say.
    But first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.

    Please do not be unhappy just because I’m out of sight.
    Remember that I am with you every morning, noon and night.
    That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through.
    God picked me up and hugged me and He said, I welcome you.
    Its good to have you back again, you were missed while you were gone.
    As for your dearest family, They’ll be here later on.

    When you’re walking down the street and you’ve got me on your mind;
    I’m walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.
    And when its time for you to go…from that body to be free.
    Remember you’re not going…you’re coming here to me

    Thank you God for sharing Eddie with us for so many years.

  15. Dear Linda, I’m so sorry for your loss and my loss of a dear friend. I enjoyed many rounds of golf with Ed and many days working together at Reynolds. May God be with him.

  16. I grieve for Eddie’s family and will keep them in my prayers each day. Linda I have some wonderful memories of you and the family. May GOD bring each one of you strength in the days ahead. Love to all.

  17. Linda and family,
    There just aren’t any words right now, or answers to why. Know that you all are in our thoughts and prayers, and we will be with you in spirit.

  18. Linda,
    We are deeply honored and blessed to have known your husband. Ed was a blessing in our lives. We will forever carry him in our hearts! Please accept our deepest condolences.
