I am so sorry for your loss. I remember him coming to the Golden Pantry when I worked there to the coffee club I created. I called him Big Ed...a quiet strong man that I listened to when he spoke. I met his wife Gloria who I called Glo who was cooking up a mean catfish at the Piggly Wiggly. A strong loving couple that family meant everything. I feel enriched having known him...God called an angel home...rest in peace Big Ed...

Edward was always good to my parents. Anytime they needed to have something worked on around the house he was always there for them. Edward was more like a son to them then a neighbor. I have known the family most of my life. There are so many memories I can’t name them all. His smile and laughter.
We were blessed to have this family as our neighbor for a lifetime. Take comfort knowing that he’s in heaven. I know we will see him again.
I love you Gloria and I love your family.

I worked with Mr. Ed at Fouche Plumbing in the 1990"s. I enjoyed working with him and all the times he made me laugh. He was an outstanding plumber. My prayers are with his family.
