Dear Ed,
So very sorry to hear of your passing. I see a number of comments from PSJ years and the old neighborhood. Count me one of them from the first grade on. Remember your going into the service party when I walked into your side door and your dog bit me going downstairs. You said it was the bellbottoms and had a good laugh. I havn't seen you in years, however I do see Chris at our reunions which I try not to miss. Chris, my deepest sympathy to you and the kids. Wish I could be there. Love,
Danny "Z"

I have to give my husband credit for reminding me of this wonderful memory of Ed it was on our wedding day when Chris and Ed were the last couple standing for the couple that had been married the longest at that time it had been approx. 37 years. When our DJ had asked him what the key was to a happy marriage he said "always say yes dear!" He will be greatly missed but we still have so many great memories to cherish in our hearts forever!

When the PSJ crowd was voting on whether to admit me as an honorary member, Ed was my advocate and promoter. How could I ever forget the ready smile and sincere embrace. No one lives forever, but some people deserve to live much longer than they have. Ed deserved to live to a thousand. God love you Ed, we'll miss you. Rick-Dog.

I never remember seeing Ed without a smile on his face and a kind word to say. Whenever someone would mention his name, I always thought, he is such a nice guy. My thoughts and prayers go out to all of you during this difficult time.

So sorry for your loss! I'm a friend of Amy's and I never met Ed, but it was so nice to see your photo tribute here online. A beautiful testament to all your wonderfully happy family memories. May God Bless you all, and bring you comfort. Hugs from the West side of the state..

Eddie, what a guy. Remember growing up together, school PSJ and building the ice rinks in your backyard every year. Remeber working on all those old cars we could never get to run. I am thankful for the small reunion we had a few years ago to sit down with old friends and talk of the good days. I enjoyed talking with you and Chris. I feel a great sorrow, you will be missed
