Ed has been an excellent friend and fellow traveller on the road of happy discovery. An autodidact and gleeful iconoclast, Ed and I had many a dynamic conversation about so many topics close to our hearts. Regardless of his own issues at any given time, Ed always took the time to care about others. He has been my mentor, friend and role model and I will miss Ed mightily. My deepest condolences to Denise and the whole family... Ed will live on in all of our hearts and will thus enjoy richly deserved immortality. Love, Frank

My sincerest condolences for you at this time. You have my deepest sympathies and unwavering support. Wishing you peace, love , and courage at this time.❤️ When I just came into Jeff’s life, I had a situation that Ed knew about, but never judged me. He brought me every and anywhere that Jeff asked him to bring me. Never once did he let me feel uncomfortable. He was an awesome person. I am glad that I had gotten to meet him. May his soul rest in peace❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

I will remain forever honored that Ed and I were friends. Ed was always there whenever a friend needed a ride to a medical appointment or any any other favor. I also cherish the talks we had about helping friends and family to get along and to get through lifes daily chalenges. What I already miss is not being able to pick up a phone and have a two way conversation with you. Or sharing oatmeal cookies with icecream. I will still talk to you but I will have to listen carefully for your responce. Until we meet again my brother. Andrew O'Toole
