We will miss Uncle Ed', always positive attitude, and our visits with him and Aunt Toots. I also remember working on their house in Livingston when I was in High School.

Dear Marie, Barbara and family,
I am very sorry to hear of Ed's Passing. I have very fond memories of the Amerlia Ave. neighborhood and our wonderful next door neighbors the Christies.
Ed will be in our prayers.
