Edward Bernard Sandhop Born: 8/19/1954 The heavens gained another sweet voice to the choir when Edward Bernard Sandhop passed into eternal rest on January 17, 2013. A Memorial Mass will be held on Saturday January 26, 2013, at 10:00 AM at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Victoria Texas. Edward will be buried in the Catholic Cemetery #2 next to the loving arms of his Mother and Father. Edward will be dearly missed by all who knew him. Edward always had an open hand and a smile, never knowing a stranger. Edward was a familiar presence in Victoria at St. Mary’s Church, at all the Victoria High Football, Basketball games and also participated in the Special Olympics for many years. Edward was preceded in death by his parents Frances B. and Fred W. Sandhop, Jr. and sister, Phyllis Ann Moreau. He is survived by his sister, Patricia E. McNamara and brother, Fred C.

Ed was one of the sweetest men I knew. He was always kind. He was always helpful. And always with that crooked smile. I loved my time with Ed. He was a special man that God allowed me to meet and care for. I know Ed is singing and dancing in Heaven right now. I can't wait to see him again.

Patrick, Patricia and the rest of the family,

I am so sorry to read of Edward's passing. I am sure that despite his limitations, he was a shining presence on this earth. Reading Muriel Cullen's facebook post further confirms this feeling.

Treasure his memory and strive to keep it alive in your hearts. He is with his parents and Phyllis in God's presence.

Although we have not been in touch in many years, I have not forgotten that we are related, albeit very distantly. My prayers are with you.

Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord and may perpetual light shine upon him. For all of you, may the grace and peace of Jesus Christ shine upon you now and forever.
