My parents and I lived next door to Ed and Jean for many decades and I wanted to say how sorry my wife and I are for your loss. My sympathies go out to Cathy, Steve and Scott. Scott was my best friend growing up and got to see him last year after my Dad passed away. Ed was a great guy and he will be missed.

Love, Dave and Leah Kopka
