  2. So sorry to hear of Uncle Ed’s passing. He was a man to look up to for sure as a good provider and family man dedicated to his wife and children. He was kind and friendly, ready to share a meal, a good lively conversation spiked with laughter and endless cups of coffee to keep us awake for the stories. Ed will be missed deeply.
