Dearest Joyce and Family, I am so very saddened to hear of your loss. Ed was a wonderful person, I admired and respected him when we were on the City Council together. He was always a gentleman and kind soul. My daughter also wanted me to express her condolences, as she grew up with Mark in school.(Danyele Lumsden, Claypool) She resides in Tennessee, she too always liked Ed as well. Joyce please know that our hearts are with you and your family. God Bless. Sharon Sharon Barnett

Joyce, Mark, Beth and Todd, I am so sorry to hear about your loss. He was always one of my favorite people while I was growing up always joking around. I loved being a part of your family for many years babysitting and living next door. Remember: Those we love don’t go away they walk beside us everyday. Love to all off you, Karen (Lampshire) Gresham Karen (Lampshire) Gresham

Please accept my deepest sincere condolences during this time of grief. My hope is that the words of Christ Jesus be comforting, when he stated that "the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out" (John 5:28, 29). We can also take comfort in God's personal promise to "wipe out every tear" and even "death will be no more" (Revelation 21:4) May you look to the Bible for comfort from our creator, Jehovah God.
