There are no words to convey how terrible this loss is. It will take time to get through the shock of it.
Ed has been around for as long as I can remember. Had the biggest heart and would always lend a hand where and when ever it was needed. Whenever he use to come by the house, he would always give the animals love, I use to think it was the sweetest thing. It use to make me smile every time. Hann Construction will not be the same without him.
My heart goes out to the Ash family and I hope your happy memories will help you through this difficult time.

So sorry for your families loss. Condolences and Prayers are sent your way.
