  1. Ed was a good neighbor to have. Have only been his neighbor for a very few years, but he welcomed my wife and I to the neighborhood when we arrived. He was easy and pleasant to talk to and enjoyed being in his company. He will be greatly missed. Hope one day to have the pleasure to shake his comforting hand again.

  2. Almedia and family. I am so sorry for your loss. I was a teenager when ya’ll moved to Big Oak back in the 70’s. We were not just neighbors, ya’ll became part of our Alabama family and have remained so throughout the years. Praying for strength and comfort for y’all. Love, Amy
