Ed was my cousin-in-love. His Aunt Edie was married to my brother, Spank. We are close in age so I remember him at Spank & Edie's house when I was growing up. I remember his handsome face, amazing grin and lively spirit. When we would see each other at family gatherings Ed was always interested in what I was doing. Though we did not see each other often I felt a special connection to "Eddie". Years passed and Helen's Garden was born. It was such a delight to see Ed & Tom at the restaurant. I remember Ed's Dad being there at Pajama Sunday Brunches and I loved his Mom's hot milk cake with fudge icing. I last spoke to Ed in May after visiting The Gypsy Queen food truck and taking a tour of the new venue with Tom. I was so thrilled about the new place and can't wait for it to open. A few days later I was touched when Ed called me. I loved Eddie. May his precious & beautiful soul dance into the Light. May all the Love and Laughter he shared with Tom and his family and friends be a comfort to them. The Rose Petal story of his neighbors says it all about how much Ed was loved. What a stunning metaphor for his life: Roses - beautiful, adored by all, a symbol of love & the heart. I will remember to take time to " smell the roses" in memory of Eddie.
Irish blessings to Tom and family. See you at The Gypsy Queen

I met Ed during some sort of interview, I suppose when I got the job at Helen's... I have no recollection of that encounter but I have so many memories of the years of friendship that followed... cocktails at the Blue Moon in Rehoboth, dinner parties at the beach house, days at Poodle Beach, listening to radios shows on the floor of the beach house- overlooking the living room, talking about "advanced ballet technique" with Ed and the body woes of being a dancer, connecting our stories in dance his fellow company member was my modern dance teacher, talking to Ed for hours on the phone as I drove from Connecticut to Baltimore, sitting on the front porch of the house in Baltimore theorizing and commenting on the world. Such a wonderful soul and a devoted friend, he was. I feel lucky to have always had both Tom and Ed on my team.

My family and I have known Ed for a brief time, but even so, we knew that he had a special quality of being able to connect with anyone. He was welcoming, gracious, and always willing to share his knowledge and stories. Over the past week, I have learned from his extended family what a wonderful human and great inspiration he was through memories of their time with Ed. His life was fully lived and light was dimmed too early, but his spirit is extended through the many people he gave of himself so generously. My prayers are for peace and comfort for Tom and family.

I keep having moments that I don’t believe it’s real. Eddie was such an awesome human. He and Tom are two of the most loving and big hearted people I know. I feel so lucky that I shared an incarnation with him. I have so many wonderful memories with him but one of my favorites was only a few months ago - Tom & Ed were on an evening walk and we ran into each other, as we frequently did, and Eddie got this big smile on his face when he saw me and said “So how are you with your B.A.M.F.S.?” And I just looked at him and smiled - and he said “Do you know what that means?” I replied “Bad A-- M---- F----- Self”. He laughed a great laugh and I think was impressed I got it so quick, lol. That is how I will always remember him. If you were having a tough day - he would lift your spirit with a joke, a story (sometimes a long winded one), a compliment or the best hug. I will miss his hugs. They were so engulfing and genuine. I could on and on about who he was to me and how special he made me feel. I’m sure everyone that he loved could say the same thing. Eddie will live in my heart forever and ever and he better be waiting with those big open arms to greet me when my time comes. We may have lost him physically but we have just gained the best angel looking over us.

What to say at a time like this? There are no words to express the sorrow felt for a loss such as this. I have been a neighbor for 21 years, but sadly I have only come to know Tom & Ed in the last several years. They always have a hello and a waive when passing by their porch and perhaps a quick story from Ed. After attending the service, I am sorry that I did not accept invites for a cocktail on the porch or that crab cake, only because I feel as though I have missed out on getting to know the Ed everyone else knows. Unique is the word I would use to describe Ed. May you Rest In Peace and know we neighbors will take care of Tom, Leo & Tweed (especially now that I can tell them apart). Dance for you are now free!

Ed was the kindest person we have ever met. He and Tom and the Helen's Garden family welcomed us with open arms, and he and the restuarant were a very big part of our move to Baltimore back in 2004. We became so much more than customers, we became family. Even if some time went by and we didn't see each other for a bit, we could always pick right up like we had just talked an hour ago. Our love for Ed will only continue to grow as he will now be watching over us, and guiding us to stay on the correct path. We love you Ed, may you rest in peace.

Ed was a true free spirit who showed us all
Be the person you are on the inside as you are on the outside.
Tom: You will always be our "huggy bear!" Stay positive through all. All our Love.

Tom & Ed,
Will miss seeing the two of you together on the porch or walking the dogs, but every time I see the roses along the block it will bring back fond memories. Prayers and love.
Your neighbor,

Ed and Tom together swept me up in their wonderful orbit of friends, dogs, and adventures. I will always cherish the magical times we spent biking, roller blading, kayaking, and playing in the surf. Ed’s intelligence and love of fellowship are a great gift he offered up to the universe. I will always love him.

Dearest Tom,
I cannot tell you how my heart is breaking for your loss. Ed was such a dear man, so brilliant, and his loss will be felt. I cannot make the service on Saturday, but I will be praying for you and Ed and hope you both find peace.

I am imagining Ed on the beach at the Monday afternoon get-togethers, Leo is there too, and Ed on his amazing beach lounger in his little blue Speedo, just holding court in his brilliant way. He will always be remembered with love, and will be missed.

Love always Lynn, and Walter
