We are sorry to hear of Ed's passing and wish to extend our sincere sympathy. We were neighbors and friends at Buttonwood Beach RV Resort. Good times on the shores of the Chesapeake Bay.
The Lord looked down and saw Ed's weary face, lifted him up to heaven to a quiet place to rest. May he rest in the Palm of God's Hand.

Dear Eddie,
It's hard to believe you were taken away from us. I'll always remember us driving in my 1976 Monte Carlo and blasting Bruce Springsteen music riding down the Boulevard. You were such a hard worker and always went above and beyond any job you ever had to do! You truly with be missed. Rest in peace Eddie.
Love you ! Aunt Reenee

I did not know you long ...although I knew of you...for a long time. I DO know that you were a kind, loving, and caring son, brother, and father. You cared about others, sometimes more than for yourself. But, you should not be faulted for that. You were passing your Love along...in your own special way. When you get to Heaven, please do me a favor: give your mother a hug, and a kiss, for me, I miss her very much.... May God take care of you, your Mom....and Bless you, and your family..... Bob

The most precious gift Mom and Dad have ever given me... is you. You are an amazing brother. A gentle and sensitive soul. I love you with all my heart.

The angels have taken you too soon, but God called upon them to fly you to his garden. The garden is endless and filled with peace and joy. Upon your arrival, you see a beautiful rose lying atop the hood of your Grand National. You see Mom exiting gracefully from the driver's seat. She's there to embrace you once again. She walks to the passenger side and smiles, she gestures to the driver's seat. Fly Eddie Fly.

Your Loving Sister...... J.
