I am truly sad to lose such a nice man. I really enjoyed his chats and he always had a hug and a kiss...some of the funniest moments were with him and my dad going at it...I will miss that banter between them. May Ed Rest in Peace. I know the angels rejoiced to have him home especially his beloved wife. <3 I give you all my sympathies.

Daddy ,
Thank You for raising us to be independent strong individuals ,for working at times 2-3 jobs traveling to New York every day so we would never want for nothing! You always provided for your family. Most may not know the difficult life you had as a young child being so poor never knowing if you were going to eat that day each day a challenge , standing on line during the depression with your grandmother for food rations . You served your country proudly joining the Navy at a very young age ,sending money home to your sisters. Then you met Ethel Brennan Married and a wonderful life began ,had 5 children and raised one grandson (your sons child )from the day he was born in your home. There was nothing you couldn't fix or build it was amazing how gifted you were giving you lost your father and mother at a young age you were truly a self made man.
Thank You Dad for the Greatest Memories Our Christmas Mornings with presents from floor to ceiling , Saturdays waking up to your Irish tunes singing cooking breakfast for all of us , the many wonderful vacations, we had a lot of fun . Will miss you greatly we've been thru so much together, It gives me peace to know you are now with Mommy and with my Matthew , Until we meet again Love you always your youngest daughter Denise Dawn
