I never saw Ed anywhere that he did not say “Hey Cuz”. He loved to tell me the story of having to cut my Dad’s hair at the funeral home way back in 1964 after his passing. He would always laugh and say it was the first time that he ever had to cut a flat-top on someone laying down! My sympathies to the all of the family and may God bless you all.

Edsel we have known each other for a very long time, and I always loved the stories that you told about you and mom growing up together. You also cut my hair better than any stylist I have ever been to. I will miss having you as my friend. I know that with you up there with mom, dad and Dick will stir the the pot a little between them, but it will all be in good fun. Love you.
