Ed, sorry that you had to go but you are suffering no more! You was a great person that I got to know and was honored to got to work with you. Now you can fix your famous chicken salad for Unelanv! But I will keep your family in prayers.

No more pain, no more worry, no more path to walk alone.
Walking now in Heaven's Garden's , sitting down beside God's throne.
I know Ed was a believer, I know his sin's were washed away.
and I know, I'll see him again, on my Homecoming day.

Love and miss you "Puddin" . May God shower His grace, mercy and joy on your family.

My sincere condolences on your loss. Ed was a good friend to me when I was in Cherokee - a good person with a wonderful sense of humor. We had many long talks about food and cooking. He'll be missed.

Ed was such a nice guy any time he came into our store. Kelli, this is Beverly from Ingles. I have thought about Ed often lately because I haven't seen him in the store. I prayed he was doing ok. I talked to my husband last night, and asked him to ask around for me today to see if anyone knew how he was doing. He told me the news, and that services had already been held at Long House, so I hopped online to see if there may be any info. I wish I'd known earlier and could have been at the services. I will be praying for you and your family.

Kelli and the Youngbird Family, I am so sorry for your loss. Ed was a great friend and he will be truly missed. I've been trying to reconnect with Ed for many years with no success. Ed and I were good friends and we used to be roommates for a few years when we worked together at Flip's in Birmingham. You may be gone now but you will never be forgotten! See you again one day my friend!!
