  1. Ed how you will be missed. You lit up a room when you came into it. You could always have a room in tears from laughing so hard. Thank you for the years we all spent together through the good and the bad times. When you moved to Florida there was a hole left in our hearts because we all missed you so much. Eating at Henry’s will never be the same. Rest easy my friend, until we meet again.

  2. Ed, so sad to hear of your passing, but our loss is heaven’s gain. You were such a good grandfather to Peyton. Every kid should be so lucky. Years ago, when Peyton was a young boy, I remember him telling me of an evening he was with you at McDonald’s late at night and you two were sitting at a table so involved in a game you were playing that the establishment began turning off the lights. They were closing for the night! Your grandson thought that was so cool bc he’d never been out so late, but so intrigued with the game that the place closing was a shocking surprise to him. His eyes lit up and he laughed as he told me this story. I’m sure that will remain among his many fond memories of you. RIP.
