    Heaven sure gained an angel. Loved Ed dearly as a good friend. Was a fantastic boss and always made us laugh! You will be missed. Asked Charlie to have been there as you crossed over. I’m sure you were both so happy to see each other. I rejoice for your soul and know you are happy, healthy and at peace. Love you my friend.

    To the family, my sincere condolences for the loss of your loved one. As you cope with your loss, may you be comforted by the “Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort” (2 Cor 1:3) that one day, “all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out.” (John 5:28, 29) May these promises from our Heavenly Father give you comfort now and real hope for the future. My deepest sympathy.

    Please accept my sincere condolences for your recent loss. My heart goes out to you and your family. I have always received comfort from the Bibles’ word at Philippians 4:7 which reads “and the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your heart and your mental powers by means of Christ Jesus”.
    I hope you can receive comfort from these words as well. Margo Simmons
