Edward was always a lover of the outdoors. He enjoyed just sitting outside and watching the night stars, having BBQ with his family, cooking and passing his love of food to his daughter-in-law. We love him so much and now he will be watching over and steering us though our own paths in life. Edward devoted his life to his family, being a father, dad, son, brother, cousin, and friend to everyone who graced his presence. Dad, your guiding hand on my shoulder will remain with me forever. We will always love you.
“When tomorrow starts without me, and I'm not here to see.
If the sun should rise and find your eyes, filled with tears for me.
I wish so much you wouldn't cry, the way you did today,
While thinking of the many things, we didn't get to DO.
I know how much you love me, as much as I love you.
And each time you'll think of me, I know you'll miss me to.
When tomorrow starts without me, don't think we're apart,
for every time you think of me, I'm right there in your heart.”
