Dick and I have always enjoyed visits with Ed and Elsie. Such a great couple! I was always very proud to be able to say that my cousin was a police officer!

Living across the street from the Dahlbergs in Riverdale will always bring good memories of Ed Sr. and Elsie, Carolyn and Ed Jr. Our condolences to the entire family and we will keep you all in our prayers.

I only ever knew Ed through visiting my grandmother in the villages. I didn't know much of Ed, but what I did know was how much of a sweetheart he was and how funny he was. It was always a pleasure to visit their home, if even for a few minutes, and run into them on the street. Ed, you will be loved and missed. My condolences to Elsie and the rest of the family. You are in my prayers and I send a warm hug your way.
