Lana and Brenda, I wish I could have been there for the beautiful service. I will miss Uncle Ed and always remember him for his sense of humor and kindness, and how much he loved his little dog and his John Deer. I'm so thankful that I had the opportunity to become close to him and that I got to visit with him in July. I know you have been left with wonderful, loving memories. I love you both. You are always in my thoughts and prayers. Love always, Linda & Family
