My mom, Mary Friend, enjoyed watching the Phillies game in the TV room with "the boys" and she would never miss Friday night with Ed Spinning the records "down memory Lane" (which I enjoyed several times with her). Ed was always a delight; a true gentleman. And don't forget to pass him the flower garnish on the dinner plate! May you be welcomed by Jesus, Mary, the angels & saints, your friends including Howard & Mary, as you reunite with your dear wife.

Ed was a dear friend of my father's--they shared memories of World War II, love of the "Big Bands" and love of the Phillies--they supported each other as they both gracefully aged in their 90's.....Ed always remembered to say hello, send cards and truly care about how you were doing.....he made a big difference in many people's lives....We will miss him! May God bring comfort and peace to his family and friends.
