Ed was a great leader and teacher of life. I worked with him for about 3 years and he always had a word to say good or bad he spoke his mind. He loved his job and did it to his best every day. Ed was a good friend to many workers and residents of Bristol Glenn. Always remember his smile it was of a true man every day he walked this earth. May god bless him and his family always. Rest in peace my friend you left us too soon.

I am sure you will miss him dearly. Again, Louise and I are so sorry and we will keep him, you, and your family in our prayers. Most sincerely, Carol and Louise
