I only knew Edgard for a short period of time. In this amount of time we shared a lot of laughs together. He was a busy body at times lol. But I looked at him as if he was my own little brother and I appreciated his personality more than anything. E-Dawg you will truly be missed. Especially at work. May Allah watch over your family always and forever.

To all his family and friends, my heart breaks for you all! My daughter Kayla spent many years in school with Edgard and remember him always riding his bike up and down Edgehill Road during the Prescott days. May you all find peace and comfort during this difficult time.

I will always remember Edgard as a wild and happy little boy with a huge smile looking for the fun. My deepest sympathy to you Patty, the fierce and constant momma bear. I believe that the amount of grief you feel in loss is a direct reflection of the amount of love you have in life. I hope you are overwhelmed by support and the opportunity to reflect on amazing memories you & Rico created in the brief but wonderful life you shared with him. Rico and Edgard are surely in each other’s arms again.

Edgard. One of the nicest, talented, most unselfish human I've ever come to know and have the honor of being friends with. From riding bikes everyday around the Prescott when we were in Elementary school, traveling to Universal Studios in Middle School, and staying in touch during High School. There was never a boring or dull moment as Edgard would always come up with things to do or play, and usually he would beat me at everything LOL. Even though our paths went different ways, I will never take for granted our time together throughout all those years and the lessons I was able to learn from you.

Rest in peace Edgard. Thinking of you and your family.
