    I just read about Edwin’s death. I’m very sorry to hear it. We graduated from Boones Creek the same year. We also went to Barnes elementary, Ruby and I were very good friends, although it’s been many years since I’ve seen her. I saw Edwin at our class reunions. God bless and comfort all of you.

    Please accept my deepest sympathy during this difficult time. Mike and Nikki you’re dear friends if I can do anything let me know. To Ed’s wife if I can do anything for you let me know. I lost my mom to cancer and I’m a cancer survivor myself now. Knowing mom isn’t suffering is a blessing and to know that we’ll all be joined again in heaven makes losing her here on earth a little easier. Ed was a wonderful man. I got to know him thru the turkey shoots and was able to visit him in the hospital. I know he loved his family and that he knew you loved him. I know family and friends came first with Ed and with each of you it’s obvious his spirit will live on. I’ll try to make it by the funeral home but because of prior commitments don’t know if I’ll be able to or not. If not, just know you’ll be in our thoughts and prayers. Earl
