I have a fond memory of visiting Chicago, and Uncle Ed and Aunt Dorothy took me to an amusement park (I don't remember the name), but they let me ride the helicopter ride by myself! (I felt so grownup). Another memory was Uncle Ed was the first person I every saw eating eggs for dinner one night.
Love to all,

May Uncle Ed rest in eternal peace with Aunt Dorothy and Pam along with his twin Aunt Elaine, sisters Genie and Fia. Fondest childhood memories of how he loved to take care of Grandma, his garden and the swimming pool we so loved to swim in. His kind gentle heart will be missed!! Thoughts and prayers with you Cyndi and Ed Jr along with the rest of the family.
