So sorry to hear about Ed. At least he is at peace, and not hurting any more. God has him in his arms.
Marlyn, you are such a wonderful wife, you was always there for him.
Aunt Clara, Bless your heart, I know it must hurt terrible to loose your son. But you know you will be seeing him someday.
Elmer and Dick, I know how it feels to loose a brother and sisters. Hang in there and you have lots of good memories.
I remember at a family reunion in Coos Bay some years ago. I all most tipped his wheel chair over in the sand.. I don’t think he let me push him again. Lol.
My prayers are with all of you,
I wish I could be there for the memorial, Because of health issues , I can’t
Love you all. Jackie
