  1. Jackie, Heather and family-I am so sorry to read of Ed’s passing. He was such a bright and happy light in this world. Always smiling and full of positivity. I will miss sitting with him at church (as we all used to do)and sharing all of our family news while we were there. I was always happy to receive his emails telling us how well he was doing-always staying positive. He was a good man and God only calls the best. Rest in Peace, dear Ed. I will remember you all in my prayers. Take care – Jackie. Love, Valerie Morton

  2. I would like to express my deepest sympathy to family and friends. May all of your good memories be greater than your sadness during this difficult time. (Isaiah 25:8)
