Uncle Ed, Godfather.

I miss you. We all do....Soaring with the angels, watching our lives, carrying our prayers....Together again with my own father, who watched over your girls after you died the way you would have done for him. Love always, Kelly

Never forgotten

Still cry that I did not save your life that fateful day...you were quite a remarkable man to make me work on the younger men first saying you had led a good life and wanted those younger than you to have a good life also I will never forget your thoughtfulness of others and hope you are at peace..
