  1. This guy was one of the best next door neighbors I ever had. I remember him and Cheri as a playful couple throughout the years. The cul-de-sac has lost some amazing people but I am forever thankful for all the wonderful memories growing up.
    Many prayers to the family. Ed sure was one of a kind <3

    • Uncle Ed was my most favorite uncle in the world. Ever since we were little,until now he had a very special place in my heart. Always took time to play with his nieces and nephews and that meant a lot. Missing his beautiful smile! I love you so much Uncle Ed❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
