Aunt Ginny, Colleen, Ed, Ricky and Kevin, I will miss Uncle Ed's big smile! As a kid I always looked forward to seeing his smile every time we came to the Cape! As I grew into an adult - he always showed such care an concern. He was such wonderful man as you all know! I know he was welcomed into heaven by so many other family members! I can see Uncle Ed, my mom (Bonnie), Aunt Pat, Aunt Eillen and Grandma (as well as many others) all sitting around laughing and telling jokes as they catch up on time! We will all miss you Uncle Eddie!!! Love to all of you!!

Ginny and fanily,
Just thought you might want to know Eddie Forge was one of my heroes ever since the days on the Chatham Town Baseball Team when he, as the starting shortstop, would go out of his way to help me a 5 year younger wannabe catcher always with his infectious grin and words of encouragement - I've never forgotten

Rick and Evan, our thoughts and prayers are with you at this time. Sorry for your loss. Janice Rogers and Alex Hillman
