One year ago I was so blessed to have come into Eds life not knowing how much time we would have together. Ed was like a dad to me always looking out for me and making sure that I was happy and giving me advice when needed. One thing he was always telling me if it hadn't been for you Julie I wouldn't have made it this far. Dad I'am so glad that I was able to give you another year....I will miss you more than you know. I love you.

Ed always added a touch of class to our Restaurant Association events. Such a gentleman and a joy to talk to. I know Marcia loved him very much.

Dad, I love you so much and am comforted by your continuing love, the knowledge that you and Mom are slow dancing in a tight embrace in heaven and the many moments we treasured together.
