Condolence & Memory Journal

Today I am feeling such gratitude for Ed's Life and all the ways he contributed to our family. Over the years He happily attended all our family celebrations, entertained old & young at his Waffle Farms Lake retreat, and even remembered his in-laws' birthdays! He modeled amazing forgiveness, authenticity and Love-in-action. He will be sorely missed, but undoubtedly will soon be joyfully pursuing new heavenly adventures ❤
Thanks for the Memories, dear Uncle Ed
