I just learned of Edward's death today after trying to call and finding that his phone had been disconnected. I met him after the death of his beloved wife and so enjoyed talking to him. Always loved to hear his sweet accent and never tired of hearing him speak of Frances. The world has lost a gem. I am so thankful I was able to meet him. I am so sad he is not a part of this world any longer, but I will never forget him.

I met Mr. Ed when he started coming in to ruby tuesdays. At first he didn't say much and one day he asked me to fix his salad without anything green and from then on we were best friends. he shared so many stories about his wife and well just everything. when he said he was moving I was sad but he promised he would be back until his house sold. I thought he had just been busy or hopefully enjoying his new place. I was so so sorry to hear of his passing. He will be missed- the sweet little man with no green stuff in his salad and double cooked fries😢 it was a pleasure to have shard the past year getting to know him!
