I can hear your laugh and see your smile that lightened the tone of any room. Your heart was genuine and your passion to see people succeed came from your soul. Thank you Ed. You made such a positive impact in my life and the lives of so many others.

I wanted to take this moment to let you know I have said a prayer that all of you have peace in your hearts. Ed was my regional manager, over a decade ago, and have never forgotten his kindness. He helped me through some crucial moments and his advice and kindness have never left me. He has passed from everyone too quickly. May God Bless all of you and keep you during your sorrow. I pray for Ed to be in peace with our Father.

I am so sad to hear of Ed’s passing. He and my brother, Rick, were best friends growing up, so Ed was at our house all the time. (His sister, Martha Ann, and I were best friends, too.) He was such a funny and kind person. All of the Wilkers are praying for the repose of his soul and for God’s comfort for all of his family. RIP Eddie.
