Traci, Kim and all the family. I am so sorry for you loss of your beloved uncle and brother. It's only comforting to know he illness was brief and perhaps his suffering on this earth was not long. What a joyous reunion he is sharing with his sister Heidi in heaven. Prayers for comfort for you all. Love you. Pat, Tom and the kids.

Met Ed through his sister Heidi, who predeceased him. He was always ready with a good joke or two. May he rest in peace, with his brother and sister.
