We have many fond memories of Uncle Ed, especially at family gatherings when he would start to tell a story or share an experience and everyone would gather around him to listen. Our favorite memories of Uncle Ed were his sense of humor and quick wit. Rest in Peace Uncle Ed, you will be missed. God bless Aunt Pat, Justin and Katie.
