Bonny, Dale and Debbie, so sorry about your loss of Ed. He was such a sweet man. I know him and John were really close when they were Ocean County American Legion officers in 1980. They are now together with our Lord and at peace. My prayers will continue for all of you that God will comfort you through this very difficult time.
