    Susan and Rachel – Our hearts are breaking for you at the passing of Ed. It’s hard to imagine this world without his big smile and laughter. He has always been a treat to be with whenever we’re together. It’s true that he gave 100% to his hobbies and talents, but he gave 200% to those he loved and a million times that to his Susan, Rachel and Kendall. You are the blessings in his life and he’ll be shining a watchful eye down on you from Heaven forevermore. We’re sorry that we can’t be with you for his services, but we’ll be there in prayers for you all.
    Love, Carol and Jim
