Condolence & Memory Journal

I was so sorry to hear you lost your husband. I was in Ohio taking care of my mother, who had a severe stroke. She passed away, and her funeral was the same day as your husband's. I wish I could give you a hug, for I know what a hard time this is for you. You have my sympathy, and you are in my thoughts and prayers!

Sorry to hear about Ed. We worked together at Central Soya in Chattanooga, TN.
He was a great man that was always highly respected.

My deepest sympathy to the Pelfrey Family at this sad time. I worked with Ed many years ago and fondly remember when he moved to this area and his first few weeks working and adjusting to his new work "home". Such a kind and thoughtful man - very devoted to family. He always had a cheerful outlook and was the first person to volunteer to help in any situation. Rest in Peace, Ed. You will be missed on this earth.
