Ed was always so sweet and kind to us . I will never forget the year we all spent living downstairs while our house was being built.
My heart is with you all. I wish I could be there in person. Eddie is most certainly at Peace and in the presence of the Angels.
Love you all.

I have many great memories of my cousin Roe's husband Eddie. Growing up I spent many sleep overs with his daughters Patty and Chrissy, always watching a Disney movie before bed. Eddie had lots of patience for us girls always talking and giggling and doing anything to stay up late! We spent summer vacations at Lake George a few different times. One of my favorite memories of him is when we would ride in his truck bringing me home after a sleep over, he would go fast with his girls yelling faster as we hit the hills and caught air on the back road to my house! Both terrifying and exhilarating! My love for fast cars started there! He was a quite guy but always had something funny to say. He will be thought of with love and missed dearly. My prayers are with the family always.
