      James and I are so very sorry to hear about Uncle Ed’s passing. He was a great man and had a helping heart.
      We’re going to miss seeing him and you Aunt Pete riding by in that pretty red truck. We’ll also miss seeing Uncle Ed buzzing by on his lawnmower. We didn’t have to look, just listen. We knew who it was.

      God Bless all of you.
