We will miss seeing Mr. Walters at the pharmacy. Praying for you, Mrs. Walters & family.

Pat,  My sympathy to you and your family at this time;  as you honor a treasured life.

So sorry to hear of Ed's passing. I have many memories working with Ed at Holophane. Condolences to all of his extended family. 

You both hold special places  in our hearts. Ed will be missed very much and I will continue to pray for you.

Pat and family,  We are so sorry about Ed's passing.   Jim would tell me stories about their childhood years. He was really happy to have a friend like Ed.   Jim wanted me watch Ed's Facebook page to see how he was doing. Even though there were many miles away from each other, we would think and pray for Ed. Remember Ed will be with you every day in your heart and memories.   God bless you, Pat.   

Pat and family. Deepest sympathy with your loss.  Prayers for you and your family.

Prayers for confort and peace at this time for you and your family 

My thought and prays are with your family and friends. Ed will be truly missed as he was a great guy to have worked with over the years

Ed was a great brother, over the years we didn' t live close to each other but each time we got together it was just like old times. I know he is with mom & dad now and his pain has subsided he will be misssed. Love you! 

Ed was a great guy. He handled his illness with bravery and dignity. Thank you for showing all of us the way. May you rest in eternal peace.

Even though you are my ex-brother in-law I have always looked up to you and respected you. My parents still remained in contact with you long after my divorce from Kim. You were loved by everyone that knew you. You will be missed by everyone but the memories you left will remain in those that had the privilege to meet you. Prayers to you Pat and all the family. God's speed Ed!!
