Edward was best friend to my dad BILL GRIFFIS. I loved him too. He loved my hat so I got him one just like mine. I snapped this photo of him wearing it. I'm so honored he is wearing in this special photo. Thanks Bonnie. Edward is one of the 53 first cousins in our family. When one of the 53 passes, we cling together for strength and to celebrate the life of that one. I'll be never forget you Eddie. You were truly one of the best.
