Debbie and David,

I am so sorry for your loss. I really enjoyed your dad. What a kind and sweet man. I loved his perfect handwriting! He loved you both so much, and he was so proud of you. And did he ever love his grandchildren! May the Lord bless you during this difficult time.

Ed, You were loved by many and were kind to all. I could not have asked for a better Father in Law and I will miss you. I will always remember and cherish the family times we spent together. You and Linda raised two great children and I am honored to be a part of your family. Love, your Son in Law - Ed Weakley

To say you will be missed, does not describe the loss that I am feeling. You have always been so very special to me and it is hard to believe you are gone!
You were so easy to love, no judgements.. just a pure loving heart and incredibly generous.
Thank you for being my Dad, friend, mentor, teacher, hero.
I will love you forever?
