    I appreciate the friendship Ed gave my sister Mary Bowers who lives down from him . She always spoke so kindly of him and he was so much company to her by phone and visits especially after Jerry passed away. She enjoyed the care and company he gave her and I as her sister appreciate him so much.. He will be greatly missed there. I am very sorry for your loss also and will be praying for you and your family. Death is never easy but God makes no mistakes and he is always there for your peace and comfort. Trust Him He never fails.
