Your smile, a kind word, a loving heart. Never bitter or angry. The perfect role model for anyone to follow. You will be missed, but never forgotten.
Take your rest until we meet again.
Sending love and prayers to Miriam and the family.

So sorry Ana & I could not come this afternoon to attend the service. We're thinking of you Miriam & family. Hoping you're all holding up. Keeping Ed in our fond memories will not keep him that far from us.

Ed was pivotal in my law enforcement career. He helped me through the application process and we became good friends. His compassion and sense of humor was unlike anyone I have met and I am so blessed to have called him my friend and mentor. You were taken away from us too soon, Ed, but I hope you know so many people love you and miss you. Rest In Peace, brother. Many blessings to your family.

Ed and I started at USF Department of Public Safety about the same time. He went on to go full time as I stayed in the reserves. His infectious smile lightens our detail when working long hours during campus graduation and basketball game--he has a big and compassionate heart. My deepest sympathy to the family. May the beautiful memory of Ed be your rafters to lessen the heavy burden in losing him. Farewell, Bro.
