My deepest heartfelt condolences to Larry, Della and the rest of the Faulkner family. My heart breaks for the grief of the loss of such a wonderful man. Ed was always so gracious and loving and I will always remember his smile and glow as he entered the church foyer with jewelry to share with the ladies. He will truly be missed.
