I have been friends with Ed and Dorothy since the late 1960’s. We met in San Antonio.
I last saw Ed in September when we shared a meal at Danielita’s. Although appearing fragile and speaking little that day, Ed had a hearty appetite, flashed his charming smile, and laughed as he attentively listened to Tammy (his caregiver) and me discussing life’s challenges.
Ed was a stalwart, upright, warm, smart, loving man. His and Dorothy’s devotion to each other was one for the books. I miss them both.

We are deeply saddened to hear about the passing of Uncle Ed. He was a great conversationalist & a joker too.
May your father's soul Rest In Peace, Robin. Stay strong in this difficult time & find comfort that he is reunited with Aunt D.
Thinking of you & the rest of the family with love and wanting to help out in any way we can.

So very sorry to hear of the loss of such a wonderful, wonderful man. Leonard and I visited Ed & Dorothy a few years ago and spent a wonderful two weeks staying with them in their home, touring the surrounding area, dining out and just having a super time with both of them. It was the best two week vacation with them and we are so glad to have those wonderful memories. We will treasure that time with them in our hearts forever and Ed & Dorothy will be greatly missed. Our deepest sympathy to Robin as well as the rest of the family.
