I Love my uncle Ed. He was loved by everyone I know. He will be missed by all. He was always sweet and nice to me everytime I saw or talked to him. He had a kind heart. I feel such sorrow for his wife, daughter, son and grandchildren. I will always be here for them. They are a very tight family. Their family is a part of my family and we will so dearly miss the part of My Uncle Ed. May God bless him in heaven.
