    We love you all dearly and regret not being close to be with you. The proof that Edward was a great man and loving person is the great family and wonderful friends he leaves behind. Tomorrow’s 8:00 a.m. Mass will be offered for Ed in La Paz Baja California Sur Mexico. May he rest in peace.

    Eddie is a wonderful man and it was an honor to meet him! I thoroughly enjoyed my weekly visits. Your family is in my thoughts and prayers. Please give Gerty a big hug from me. With Love, Kim

    I only had the oppurtunity to meet my Great-Uncle Eddie a few times in my life. With my family returning ‘home’ to visit as a kid and a few times vistiting as an adult. I only have warm loving memories of a man who seemed to love life and everyone in his life. I’m honored to have known him.
