To the Haley Family, I'm sorry to hear of your loss. Ed was such a great guy. I don't know of anyone who will miss him more than his boys.
I was touched reading each of these condolence messages. It goes to show how kind and loving a man he was. I can't help but say he did a great job of raising his boys to be just like him! Praying for you during this difficult time. I smile knowing Ed was greeted by Malinda when he entered into eternity.
What wonderful treasures you have waiting on the other side.

Barney, Amanda, Brian and Tammy, and the rest of the family, Poppy and I are sending our prayers for your whole family to find comfort in knowing that Pap-pap is now at rest and no longer struggling. He loved his family, and I know this because he told me every time we talked how proud he was of all of you. May the peace of God be with you all during this time.

Gene and I are so sorry we are unable to attend Ed's funeral. We will miss him greatly but remember the great times meeting him at various car shows; especially at Oklahoma City and Cruisin' the Coast. We will remember him like we saw him last at Cruisin' the Coast.
