To the Barker family,
I was deeply saddened to learn of Ed’s passing. I had the pleasure of working with him at the Warehouse at Scully Mines a long time ago when I was a student. He and the warehouse gang were true gentleman and took great care of me while I worked there. Ed always had a smile. My condolences to you and your family.

Gone is the face we love so dear, Gone is the voice we love to hear. Too far away for touch or speech, But not too far for love to reach.
