To Ed's family. I was shocked to hear of Ed's passing this morning. I remember the fun times we had when he worked for me at Li'l Peach. He was a fun person to be around. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. Bob

Dear Judy, Amber, and Eddies Children, Our sadness in Eddies passing is without measure. Beneath his gruff exterior was a gentle, kind hearted soul who loved life to the fullest and who held a special place in our hearts and in those of everyone he knew. His accomplishments in life were a true testament that through determination and hard work you can overcome anything. Sadly, his last struggle took him before he could get his transplant but our sincere wish is that he is breathing freely and at peace and that you all can find your own peace in the memories of a life, while short,that was well lived. With our deepest Sympathy and Love, John and Mark
