We are so sorry to hear of Uncle Ed’s passing. I am thankful for the many wonderful memories of growing up next door. Please take comfort in knowing he made his life count in many ways – he served his country in the military and he served his community in the fire department to name a few. He will be missed.

My sincerest condolences to Jill and family. My prayers are with you during this difficult time.

So sorry to hear of Ed’s passing, my thoughts and prayers are with you all at this most difficult time.

Our condolences to Ed’s family. I worked with you Dad at St John’s Fire Department.

Our love and our prayers are with you during this very difficult time. We will always remember Uncle Ed with fond memories. Hold each other close and remember the good times. – Love Todd, Deb and the children.

So sorry for your loss Joann, Jill and Dean. I had the pleasure of visiting your parents cottage by the lake near Mahers, and I’ll always remember hearing your dad saying “damned squirrel”, followed 5 seconds later by the loud boom of a shotgun. The squirrel just chattered louder! Both of your parents made me feel so welcome that weekend so many years ago. Please know that we are both thinking of you at this difficult time.

So sorry Joanne, Jill, Dean and family. We loved him to. Our prayers are with you at this sad time. Great memories to last a lifetime for sure! Craig and Denyse
