I knew Mr. Ed because he was my cousin Johanna's (Joi) main man for 10 years. What a kind, loving, giving man! I had an incident with an electric hedge trimmer that sucked my long blonde hair into the fan motor and stopped the trimmer from working. When I relayed this to Joi, she immediately told me that Mr. Ed likes to tinker and fix stuff, give it to him. About a month later when I saw Mr. Ed and Joi, sure enough he had the hair removed and the trimmer was ready to use again. He 'd even asked if I wanted the hair back. He definitely had a great sense of humor!
He was quite helpful when my husband and I bought a new house too. Hanging shelving, installing doors, etc. Don't think there was anything he could not do.
I will miss him! RIP Mr. Ed! And, thanks for all you did! :)

So many stories it’s hard to pick one but, one of my favorites (and his) was when he had surgery and I was driving him all over for doctors appointments and picking up prescriptions because I had to be his ears! We were leaving the parking lot with his new prescription and pack of cigarettes (which he wasn’t supposed to have) music up loud and windows down! I turned out of the parking lot and we watched his new unopened pack of cigarettes slide across the dashboard and right out of the window! He turned to me and said “I just bought those Jo, turn around so we can go get them! I looked right back at him and said “nope, you aren’t supposed to be smoking them anyway”! He never let me forget about that day! I am going to miss his smile, the way he always made me laugh and EVERY time a song came on the radio he would ask “who sings this song Jo”! He was so much more than an Uncle and I am so lucky to have grown up with him in my life! ❤️
