Terry and I have sweet memories of Ed and Brenda attending Montgomery Tabernacle when Terry pastored in the early 80's! Your father was an encouragement to us and always very supportive. We loved him and will miss his smiling face. Please know that our thoughts and prayers are with you, Brenda and with Debbie, Angie & Scott! ♡♡♡

Papa always wanted to make strong positive memories with and especially for his family. Whether it was taking a family picture in the same vacation spots, sharing some of his special childhood stories, or making sure we were experiencing culture and activities, he wanted to be remembered for the memories he created. He was consistently and purposefully making sure we had and remembered wonderful experiences-big and small. This was one of his ways of lavishing God's goodness and grace on us.

Ed was one of perhaps 2 dozen of us who started first grade together and graduated Piedmont High School in 1962. Many fond memories of times together. Our condolences to Brenda and the family.

Ed was a great friend of ours growing up in Piedmont. Mike shared his childhood with Ed playing baseball, football, basketball, scouts, hunting and generally doing guy things. I remember when we were going to build a raft and float down Terrapin Creek to the Gulf. Never did make it but we sure dreamed about it. I lost touch with Ed but I never lost the memories.
