So sorry for your loss. Ed was a faithful member of the Harding High School Alumni Association and attended our luncheons regularly. Such a kind and loving soul. We will miss him. Knew his sister Cissy as she worked at Duke Power Company. Love and sympathy to all the family. Anne & Tommy

Thanks for all the memories at our weekly breakfast. Sorry to hear about your loss. Never had a chance to play golf with him, but I heard a lot of the guys stories. God Bless your family during this difficult time.

Eddie and I were "date mates" back in high school days. Every time he came home on leave from the USAF, we would always get together. Then the word went around that he had found an English girl that he planned to bring back to the states to marry. Then I got married and lived in Birmingham, AL for 50 years, so lost track of Eddie and never had the privilege of meeting his English bride. He was a great guy and he would pick me up in a big (5 star?) Buick that his dad had bought and he thought he was "king of the hill." Had heard that he had moved back to Derita and was a postmaster there. Intended to track him down "one day" - but everyone knows how THAT goes - just sorry I never got around to it....

I am saddened to hear about Ed's death. He and I served together on the Board of Deacons and the Session at Sugaw Creek Presbyterian Church. Ed was also the mail carrier for WHVN for many years. I appreciate the friendship I had with him. My deepest sympathy goes out to the Davis family.

I will miss Ed, we bowled together for several years and he was a very thoughtful man. Every year he used to send me a card on my birthday. I feel sorry for his family especially his son, Tom.
