Ed is my 1st cousin. My mother, Sophia Mellinger and Ed’s mother are sisters. I always remember going over to Aunt Nettie’s house on Sundays when we were kids. We had so much fun. Ed had the greatest sense of humor and me and my sis and Ed would have so much fun. We always had ice cream from a little ice cream place down the street from their house on Main Street in Burlington. When Ed was a little older, he would drive us all to church in Oakville, Iowa on Sunday mornings. We would still all go to Aunt Nettie’s after. I will always remember my cousin Ed with love. He was a wonderful caring person. Rest In Peace Ed. My sympathy to all the family and John. John, thank you for always being there for Ed. Love, Marjorie Mellinger Roth, husband Jim and family ❤️🙏🏻
