    Our family lived down the road from the Bablers, years ago. I remember Edgar from when I was a little girl and played in the barn and petted the animals around his farm. It was great fun to catch a tractor ride, too! My fond memories of him and his family will always remain. Edgar, such a wonderful and gregarious spirit, will be welcomed by the angels now. Blessings to Christopher and family. Be well.

    I am so sorry for your loss. Edgar was an awesome man. One of my favorite memories of Edgar is playing cribbage with him. It was one of my favorite games.
