My prayers and thoughts are with the Orel Family to help get them through this sad time. Ed was a big part of my life during our preteens. Those times of growing up being around family was a special time of my life. May God bless Ed and the Orel Family.

To Ed: one of the most wonderful, funny, loving individuals I have had the pleasure of knowing & working with. I have many found memories and will treasure them forever. You truly are a gift and have touched many lives.

Family & friends: when someone you love has passed away, never look down to the floor with sadness. Instead, keep your head held high and look to the heavens, for that is where Ed is and your heart will begin to heal. I said a prayer for you today that God will touch you with His healing hand and give you the comfort and peach you need to get through.
