Ed my brother in law and one of the funniest men I have ever met. Heaven will be laughing with all your jokes. I will think of you fondly when watching football. Give my sister Jeannette a hug and kiss for me. I will miss our phone calls. Wish I could be there for your send off. Keep an eye on all of us. Love and will miss you. Kathy

My sainted Grandfather...your life has been an inspiration and you helped shape me into the man I am today. I love you and will miss you dearly. Have a cribbage board with a Tanqueray & tonic waiting for me when I get up there.
