  • My thoughts and prayers are with you Dearest Aunt Gladys. Uncle Ed and you were inseparable from day one of meeting one another. I have many fond memories of the two of you loading up all of us kids and “going for a ride!” Always ended up with either dinner, ice cream or a special treat. Many trips to Kidron he accompanied Dad and he enjoyed his company. He was a good man and he will be sadly missed.

  • My deepest sympathy to you Aunt Gladys. You and Ed deeply loved each other. I have fond childhood memories when Ed came to Kenworth and interacted with the neighborhood kids,along with our Fourth of Julys watching the fireworks, and having fun at Bluegrass festivals. I love you, Aunt Gladys. Rose.

    Dear Gladys,
    Even though you and your family are mourning Ed’s passing I know you are celebrating his life.

    The several times I had the opportunity to be with you and Ed, you both seemed very positive and happy, caring for one another and those around you.

    You and your family will be in my thoughts and prayers not only now but in the days to come. When the waves of sadness come over you, think of Ed’s positive, joyful spirit.

  • My deepest condolences to Ed’s wife and family. I was Ed’s Honor Flight Guardian on September 29, 2012. He was a great and funny man, and it was truly an honor to spend his special day with him in Washington, D.C. Rest in peace, Ed, and thank you for your service!!
