Little Ed, Doreen and Jeff
I have so many fond memories of our families spending time together. The camping trips were the most fun in the Adirondacks and the Thousand Islands. I recall watching our parents together…they really enjoyed each others company. Dad was especially entertained by your dad’s ability to kick the top of door jams! Big Ed always had a story and a smile on his face. Sally, it’s been a pleasure meeting you and owning one of yours and Big Ed’s Buicks. You were a caring and wonderful wife to him.

We’ve lost a good friend that was always full of funny stories and enjoyed a good cup of coffee and conversation. We enjoyed many car shows together and car show trips that were memories made to last a lifetime!! Our hearts are filled with sadness but know that Eddie is free of pain and suffering. Our thoughts and many prayers are with you Sally, Jeff, Ed, Doreen, Heather, Eddie’s faithful furry companion Jack, and all of Eddie’s extended family. Hugs and Love to all of you….Rest in Peace Eddie ? ~ I’ll drink a cup of coffee in your honor.
