Cousin Ed has been such a blessing to our entire family. His zest for life and his sharp wit were gifts which I will always treasure. His ability to recall events was astonishing! He was the master story teller and always had a new joke to share. Cousin Ed gave us all the gift of laughter! He also loved family and we loved him! I am thankful for the wonderful full life he lived and for the time we had with him. My prayer is that he is sharing his joy and laughter in heaven and that we will meet once again :).

Edward was my grandmother's cousin and we became acquainted later in his life. I have nothing but wonderful memories of talking to 'Cousin Ed' on the phone for lengthy periods and listening to his many wonderful memories. He led a rich, full life. Vale.

What a treasure of information we have lost in Trigg County. His memories of events and people from earlier times were second to none. We enjoyed his friendship and will miss his presence. Woody and Teresa Woodall

I have such fond memories of cousin Ed. He was inspirational to me personally in my pursuit of a college degree and my work in business. Early on when I first lived in Louisiana, he related to us on all the nuances of Cajun living. He always remembered us at Christmas with a card and genuinely cared about my family. I know one day, we will meet again in Heaven and be greeted with a European kiss on each cheek. I will miss you!
