Edward will be greatly missed. he was so loving and kind to myself
and my brothers and treated us as if we were his children even though we were not.
i always looked forward to his delicious chili
as well as his kind nature and quick wit.
he was always there when i needed his help for anything
and didn't mind going out of his way to give me a ride to one of my many doctor appointments.
cannot say enough that adequately show what kind of man he was.
i miss him so very much
