Lorenda, I was saddened when reading about the loss of your father. Wow! It's amazing how much you resemble him. You and I haven't seen each other nor spoken with each other in years. However, I have very fond memories of you and I as kids growing up in Absecon. It feels like it was yesterday. I regret never knowing what a great and accomplished man your father was. You and you family must be extremely proud to have had such a wonderful person in your life. My deepest sympathy to you all.

My deepest condolences to the family. Sorry to read about the loss of your dear love one. Death leaves a void in our hearts. Our heavenly father is aware of our suffering. May you find comfort from the Holy scriptures 2COR1:3,4, Isaiah33:24, also Acts 24:15.

My sincere condolences to Ed's family. I only knew Ed for a short time (we were seniors together at the former Beaverdale-Wilmore High School in Beaverdale, Pa.) but I remember him as a kind, quiet young man and it was a pleasure knowing him.
