Heaven has another angel. I have known Eddie since age 14 . I know that he is no longer in pain and hoping that he has a wonderful golf course in Heaven. He will be missed by everyone that ever knew him.

Ed became our brother when our parents, his Mom and our Dad met and married. We never lived together as siblings but for a lifetime we were friends. We love you Ed and we will miss you.
