Dear Jeanette,
You and Ed have been the best neighbors anyone could ever hope to have. For the past 16 years Ed has been a dear friend to us. Everyday has been enjoyable knowing he was there watching and helping with anything we needed. The loss is too great to measure. Blessings to you and your sons.

Our prayers for peace and love for the Coat's family. Mr. Ed will surely be missed here on Earth but we know where he is now. We always enjoyed a taste of his good cooking, he seemed to be a jack of all trades.

Brad, I was saddened to hear of your dads passing. Summers won't be the same not seeing him out there cutting the grass. I would pull up to the curb to visit for a moment & he was so pleasant to talk to. Thoughts & prayers are with you & your family.
