Uncle Ed Cunningham was my father's brother, and I can honestly say that I could not have loved him any more if he had been my own dad. I'll never forget when Grandmother Cunningham (his mother) passed away in 1989 and I spent most of that week at her home there in Bonham with the family. Uncle Ed happened to remark one afternoon that a fresh, hot cup of coffee sounded good, so I promptly scooted off to the kitchen and made him one. He thanked me when I took it to him and said he didn't want to be any trouble. I told him I was happy to be his "gopher" for the week ("go for" this and "go for" that), and he chuckled and put his arm around me and said, "Well, you're a mighty sweet gopher." Dear Uncle Ed, you were unfailingly kind to me my whole life and you made it easy to love you. Rest easy, sweet soul. Your sweet gopher will always love you. :)

Bud was an exceptional cousin. He was so fun-loving, full of life, humorous and loved Barbara more than anyone in the world. I remember as a young girl going to his home and the fun we had as a family together. As a young girl Bud would let me and my sisters drive his car all afternoon. Bud has a very sporty car that went fast and was loud. To a young girl to drive a car like Bud's was a dream come true. He was always generous and had something good to say about everyone. I will miss his smile and his love for life. I have been blessed to call him my cousin.

The memory of uncle Ed that brings a smile to me is when as a little girl he would come take me and my brother for "joy" rides on his motorcycle. Every time is see a motorcycle I think of him...
