First of all, I remember everyone as the photo taken when younger! So sweet. While we lived across the street from the Paul's, what I remember most was Ed's dedication to family and serene calmness. So pleasant, joy-filled, helpful & kind. Always interested in everyone's well-being. DeAnne and Ed perfectly complemented each other with their loving and caring ways. My children's first memories are with the Paul family. Thank you all for sharing your love, grace and zest for life with us. We love the Paul family and are holding you in the highest! (Thank you Ed for your laughter, kindness & care towards me & my family... until we all meet again, may the peace of the Lord be with us) Blessings ~ Julie, Claira & Noelle

I had the privilege of knowing Ed through is wife, and children through the years....What a man! So active, loved his family.
He shared his "Turkey Burger" recipe and gave me pomegranates off of his tree.
My sincere sympathies to all of the family and friend. He will be missed on the earth.
