Uncle Ed. I was glad to see you 8 months ago. I will never forget the Eagles vs Cowboys bets as a kid. I will always remember you getting me me into Widener university. Now you are up in heaven with my dad. I know you missed him so much. It is tough for both families, but you both were called by God.

I’ll forever miss you Ed. You were always good to me and accepted me into the family. And more than anything you were always devoted to your family. I’ll miss talking with you about Ann Murray songs and will always think about you when I hear one. Rest In Peace dear man ❤️

My heart aches over the loss of my dad. He was such an amazing father and role model for the rest of us as we were growing up. I learned so much from him, and I’ll always remember his words of wisdom. His memory will be forever a source of comfort for me. I will miss most our weekly Sunday calls where we just talked and updated each other on life.

At times like this our faith serves us well, a lesson I learned from my dad. I will take solace in knowing that my dad has gone to his eternal rest. He lived a faith-filled life and he will be remembered for all the good that he did in his lifetime.

Rest in peace my dear dad.
