    Alan, you have my deepest condolences. Please take comfort in the knowledge that your Dad and Mom are finally together again. One day at a time my friend.

    Dear Kelly and Alan, you have my most sincere and deepest sympathies at the loss of your Dad. Ed was truly one of a kind. Meeting him and knowing him was truly an honor. There are so many memories. From playing freeze tag, to the one time I spent the night after announcing at a horse show not far away. I was always welcomed warmly and as family. Ed, and your Mom made the world a better place.

    Ed was an original… a great guy with a zest for life and a fun sense of humor. A friend to all he met, warm and genuine. He’s now reunited with his beloved wife Rogene.

    Kelly, Alan, and Joe,
    We are so sorry for your loss. We always enjoyed hearing about your Dad’s observations regarding the current state of affairs. He was an excellent example of the greatest generation and will be missed.

    Alan and Kelly,
    You know how much Ed meant to Stephen. I also thought a lot of Ed and Rogene. Stephen loved him like a dad. He enjoyed talking to him,
    And going out for breakfast with him and Alan.
    I remember seeing ole Ed in PJ playing cards way back in the 80’s. Always had a smile on his face. Ed you’ll be missed so. Love Steve Turner’s
