We were lucky enough to host Thanksgiving at our house with Ed always being our special guest. He always had a warm and infectious laugh. I will always remember the giant blue bottles of wine he brought as his contribution. I will miss him dearly. It was an honor to know him.

Ed was such a great man! Father and Grandfather....he always did the right thing even if it was not a popular choice. With the death of his son, (my husband), he stepped in for my two boys...helping them, watching them, etc. as their own father would have. For that, I am eternally grateful. I will miss him greatly!
