Oh Ed!! You’ll be sooo missed my friend. Thank you for all the smiles and laughs. You truly made my days brighter than you’ll ever know.
The struggle is now over…You can finally rest in peace….even though we agreed you’d live forever.
See you on the other side
Ed was such a great guy and would give you the shirt off his back (literally). He was so kind hearted and always ready to help anyone.
Even on his worst days, he was ready to work… sometimes having to take a minute to catch his breath, but got the job done. Fly high brother, until we meet again! ❤️
