Although we didn't know the entire Fell family, our hearts go out to them. We met Ed and Pat at gatherings with their friends the Bruny's and Walker's and came to recognize Ed as a fine man with a wonderful sense of humor. He will be missed.

So sorry to hear about Uncle Red's Passing. A great man from The Great Generation. He lived a good, full, and joyful life. I have numerous fond memories of him that spans the better part of my life. I certainly miss him but will not forget him. I have a small picture on the wall of our bathroom, it's of Grandpa, Joe, and Red in a small boat on the Tittabawassee River. That picture reminds me of them on a regular basis

Words seem inadequate to express the sadness Barry and I feel about Eddie's passing. Pat and Eddie will remain in our hearts forever.

We remember "big Ed," as we called him, his lovely wife Pat and beautiful family as the best Royal Oak neighbors ever. Ed always had an infectious smile and upbeat demeanor. He was a good man with a big and loving heart. The photo gallery is outstanding and reflects Ed's joie-de-vivre towards all. Hugh and Jeannine Gray, West Bloomfield, MI

Uncle Eddie was a life force. His humor - his deep, booming voice - his kindness and generosity and his love of family, will be what I remember most. My deepest symapthy to the entire Fell family.
