The heart of my memories with Ed are the blessed moments we shared in discussing past and present domestic and world politics and ethics. Joyous memories abound.
Death brings an end to our physical life, but life everlasting with Christ continues for all the redeemed in Christ.
Your brother in Christ, Bob Fantelli

‘Our Gentle Giant of the Sea’

Uncle Eddie was a big ol’ Giant
Cuddly Bear with Giant Stature.
Boisterous laughter
And covered in curly red hair.

His love stretched further than man could see.
Always helping and caring for those in need.
His humor, our mini-golf and coffee ice cream.
To home movies, vacations and pictures supreme.

We’d comb the beaches for shells through the sand
While talking and laughing and holding hands.
His voice was like soft thunder, he was a big man
Yet gentle enough to hold the smallest child in his hands.

There’s millions of memories of joy he has brought.
These memories of him will never be forgot.
He towered over us with great height but we were never afraid
A Giant shadow of love is what he always made.

Our lives and Cape Cod will never be the same
But love we will feel when we mention his name.
He was the gentlest, kindest, funniest Giant, and Giants do fall
This giant leaves waves of love to last generations for all.

Sadness now, we cry, we weep.
Our gentle Giant has gone to sleep.
He’s with Jesus now, where best to be.
Swim, Gentle Giant.

Swim, you’re now free.

I love you and will miss you, Uncle Eddie.

Your Loving Niece,
