So sorry to hear about my cousin Eddie's passing. I remember the last time I saw him was at a family reunion, which was sometime ago. Jordan, my son, was a little fellow then and I remember Eddie teaching him how to play horse shoes. Jordan had so much fun that day thanks to Eddie. Again my condolences to Aunt Carol and the rest of the family.

My sincerest condolences to the Wilson family. Peanut (I always called him my Snoopy) was one of my very best friends at Fairfield Jr. High School. Unfortunately, we started to fall out of touch after FJHS in 1971. The last time I saw him was when he played in Carousel at HSHS. His performance was wonderful and I remember well his welcoming hug back stage afterwards. Peanut was one of the most kind-hearted and unselfish people I have ever known. I don’t remember him ever uttering a mean-spirited word about anyone. We shared so many laughs and confidences that I will always carry in my heart. May God Bless his family and give them comfort.

My sincere condolences to the Wilson family and close friends at this time of loss.
I remember "Peanut" being one of the most gregarious individuals I've ever known. Never a person of self-pity or discontent. Ed always brought a smile to my face whenever I'd see him in the halls of Highland Springs High or with friends after school. I am so thankful I was able to see Ed at our last high school reunion. Ed had not changed one bit from that person I'd grown to cherish when we were young teenagers. I will miss his laughter and his spirit.
May you rest in peace Peanut!
Ben
