Dear Sariann,
I was shocked to read of Ed's passing. I worked with him at County Transportation. Ed was really a very kind person. I enjoyed his company and sharing food recipes with him. I last saw Ed at Hoss's and he looked good. Cherish your memories and he lives on in Heaven. God Bless

Marcia Bitner
Sari, we were shocked to hear of Ed's passing.  I'll allways remember my childhood growing up and having Ed call me Denise and the guys around the firehouse looking out for me.

 Ron and Anita Bowermaster

Sariann, Our deepest sympathy is with you at this time. I was sorry to read about Ed.
He was a great person.
It's been awhile since I have seen you as we have moved to Oak Ridge, NC.  I remember the days at JC Penney and the fun we all had together. Take care and know that Ed is being well taken care of by our Lord.

Sandy & Ira Landis
Sariann,   We are all sad to learn of Ed's passing.  The street will never be the same without seeing Ed on his scooter going for a walk around the neighborhood.   Please know that we are only down the street if you should need anything.  Ed is now another angel looking over all of us until we meet him again someday.   God Bless.

Mark and Dawne Curlen

Dear Sariann, We are sorry to hear of Ed's passing. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.  Howell and Christine Newton
I knew Ed from the Pa Fire Police.  He was always a voice of calm, reason, and wisdom.  I have truly missed him.
