I tried this earlier, never posted! Ed, thank you for everything you did for me before my brain injury then after! I know we didn't always see things the same but you were a fantastic brother! We were so close in age, you were just 11 months older! We never let that affect us! I'm gonna miss you very very much, rest bro rest!

Eddie, we will miss you. So glad we were able to have dinner and catch up in May. I feel lucky to have so many happy memories of our Christmas and Thanksgiving dinners together as kids. The Roberts cousins group won’t be the same without you. Rest peacefully.

I am so saddened to hear of your passing Eddie . We spent many afternoons talking at 179 while people waited on their mail. We had laughs and we had serious talks. We talked about our families we talked Scituate and we gossiped ( not gonna lie ) I will miss you my friend. I hope your at peace.

We are extremely sad to hear of Ed's passing. He was so nice and friendly. I would chat with him on occasion when he delivered the mail to Hatherly school. Always so upbeat!! And We have been neighbors almost all my life. Jamie, you are in our hearts with deepest sympathy. RIP Ed.

Dear “Cuz”...
I’m still having trouble processing the news of your passing. I keep remembering all of the fun we had as kids. Family cookouts... playing softball, kick ball and croquet. We got so competitive, sending each other clear across the yard and sometimes down the street! Family day trips, Christmas and Thanksgiving and Easter. Then the fun and crazy days at the Y... as campers, councilors and leaders.
Things changed when your Dad died.... we all missed him so much. We did not see each other as much but I’m grateful we kept in touch. I loved our phone calls and messenger chats. Our heartfelt chat last October is a keeper. Ed... you were a hard working, funny boy/man and I was always proud you were my cousin. Say “hi” to your parents, my parents and Auntie Margie , Uncle Charlie and Steve. Get a mean game of croquet going. I love you, Ed. RIP, cousin.

I'm so sorry to hear of Ed's passing. He was a sweet guy. Peace to his family and friends, find grace in your memories of Ed. I haven't seen him in years, but was one of the kid fixtures at the gas station a bazillion years ago growing up in the best of neighborhoods.
Rest in peace Ed.

We met Eddy years ago through Jamies Pub. So sorry to hear of his passing he was always kind and flashing a giant grin. Sending our sincere condolences to his beloved family and friends.

Ed was a heck of a good guy. Worked with him for over 20 years. When he first came to our office he worked as a supervisor, everyone liked him. He was smart, courteous, and respectful. He was well thought of by all. Rest well Eddie. You will be missed. -BEAGLE.

Jamie, I just read your last blog entry. As someone who lost a brother I know just how painful that loss is. Of course it hurts losing parents but we all expect that to happen eventually. A relationship with a sibling is unique. Being of the same generation we understand each other in ways a parent cannot. We share memories and understandings that no one else in the world has. Even though your relationship with Ed was strained over the last few years this is just as true for you. And there's always regret!!! You wish that your relationship with Ed had improved while there was still time. I was close to my brother in the last few years of his life but my regret is that if I'd been a better older brother while we were growing up things might have ended differently. I try to remember that while it's good to help people you can't control the destiny of another person. The grieving goes on for a long time but it does get better eventually. Not getting the body back for days definitely makes it even harder to process the grieving.

Ed I am in shock, you were a great guy. It was a special time in the “Y” days and then again at Northeastern, so glad we were able to reconnect, I’ll always remember those good times.
