Ed put his whole heart into everything he did. His faith, hope, and trust in God guided him through life. He took great delight in his children and grandchildren. He enjoyed his friends, neighbors, church, and community. Harvest was his favorite time of
year and he loved to see the bounty of it. It seems significant that he passed away on the first day of fall. He will be greatly missed.
