Dear Yeska Family, I'm so sorry to hear of Ed's passing. I knew Ed about 50 years through Local 85. We would bump into one another every know and then. My thoughts and prayers are with you. R.I.P. brother Ed.

My deepest sympathy to Ed's family. Ed and I were classmates from kindergarten to high school. We remained friends in Carrollton. Hope you are dancing the Polka up there! May the angels welcome you to Paradise, Ed and the martyrs greet you on your way. Rest in Peace and pray for us.
