My brother - Ed.
I have so many memories with him, through our childhood and adulthood.
I enjoyed our Sunday afternoon visits, when he would come and eat noon-time meal. He would stay awhile and visit with me and my family. He loved to talk with my grandkids. Sometimes he would even spend the night. He was always a hard worker and tried his best at what he did.
I loved to kid him about pushing me out of the hayloft and causing me to have a broken arm. He said he didn't remember that but he was sorry.
He loved God, and talked of all the good things God has done!
I will miss our times together, but I know he is rejoicing on the streets of heaven! I will see him again!

Ed was one of my favorite people. Always enjoyed his talks, laughter and hugs. Loved unconditionally and one of the reasons I became a Pastor myself. God fearing family man. Great role model to me. Always lifted me up when I was feeling down. He will be missed greatly. My condolences to the family.
