My heartfelt condolences go out to Brett, Becky and Ray. I love you dearly my cousins and mourn the loss of your father. It is comforting to know that he is reunited with your mother, his son and other family members who have returned to Heaven before him. I know you will meet him on the other side and have a joyous reunion when you are called home by your Savior. You remain in my thoughts and prayers. May God be with you.

I am so sad to hear of Uncle Ed’s passing. I have so many great memories of going to visit Great-Uncle Ed and Great-Aunt Bobbie. I remember sitting on Ed’s lap and telling each other monster stories, as gory as a young child could make up. It was always fun meeting with the extended family for parties and we went every year to pick apricots from their tree. He would let us climb up in his boat and always treated us as if we were his own grandkids.

So many fond memories of Uncle Ed and Aunt Bobbie! I loved all the pictures. I remember going to their home in Bountiful for family birthdays and special occasions. I remember going out on his boat to several lakes. He was always so willing to take all of his extended family on his boat. I remember going out on Willard Bay once when their was a mishap with another boat and Grandma Lu Richards was injured on her "boob". What a funny experience. I know he loved Aunt Bobbie so much and loved having his family around. He was a good man. So sorry for your loss.

So many cherished memories of Uncle Ed and Aunt Bobbie. It was always a delight to visit them in Bountiful. I loved the pictures that were shared, brought back fond memories. It was fun to always visit with Uncle Ed as he would always ask me if I was keeping Utah County under control. He will be greatly missed. He was a good man.
