We’ve shared the most cherished of friendships..from the ocean trips to the mountain cabins…from the golf course to the lake…we could never express how many wonderful, joyful times we shared together. Kathy, we will always be here for you….always. With deep love, Steve and ‘Benit’

No words can express my sadness for our loss and my caring for you. I wish I could be there with you, but know that my heart is with you always. With Love, Sharon

  4. Kathy,
    We are so sorry for your loss. Ed was a great guy and will be missed. He always had something positive to say and was by far the best “off the cuff” speaker that I ever knew. May God Bless,
    David and Becky

  5. We are so sorry for your loss. Our family loved “Uncle Ed” dearly. Listening to Ed and my dad laugh — as they did often– is one of my favorite memories. Your family is in our prayers. Love, Joe and Kristin Ramsey

  6. Dear aunt Kathy, I’m so sorry to hear about uncle Ed. He was such a wonderful man. I remember walking around town in PA just the three of us taking photos and just having fun!

  7. Kathy,
    I am so very sorry for your loss. Ed was a wonderful man! I am thankful for having met the two of you. I especially enjoyed Ed’s sense of humor…he made the long days at the poll enjoyable. May you find some comfort in knowing that he touched the hearts of others and will not be forgotten.

  8. Fifty-eight years of friendship, the Godfather of our children, a son that bears his name. We truly Loved him. Kathy, the Light of our earthly life has dimmed. Our Lords heavenly Light is now much, much brighter.

    All our Love,

    Ray & Denny
