Barb and Jodie,

I remember well the first time I met Ed and Barb and the many times we visited together but what I remember best is that you folks were always Shirley's best friends and I was always glad to see how happy the two of you made her on those occasions. Ed will be dearly missed by everyone who knows him but none more so than his favorite cousin Shirley. I am so sad for all of you.

Rose Frasnelli

Barb and Jodie - I am so saddened to hear of Ed's passing. I wish he could have enjoyed more of his retirement years. I have a lot of fond memories when he was my boss at Natrium PPG, especially when he unknowningly used my plant food water to make our department coffee. We all survived that.

Please know that you'll be in my thoughts and prayers. God bless.

Our hearts are aching along with yours. Our beloved friend has left early, much too early. Perhaps that is the nature of precious things - to be rare and/or brief and we can't imagine a more precious commodity than Ed and your friendship. Know we love you and are with you in spirit in this terrible loss.
