    Hey Kathy and Guy, As you know, I worked with Ed during his many years at Hackney, where he contributed so much to the success of the IT department. He was so smart and such a hard worker. I am deeply saddened to hear of his passing. May God give you peace and comfort.

    This is so shocking. I know it will be hard on Uncle Guy and the rest of the family. So many wonderful memories growing up and visiting during the Summers with Mom and Dad and our crew of 5.

    Life has had many changes through the years, but sweet memories last eternal.

    God bless the family.

    I love you guys.

    My heart goes out to Uncle Guy, Steve and Kathy. I’m so very sorry for your loss. Eddie and I spoke over messenger until he couldn’t type. He was always such a gentle soul and a very good person who didn’t deserve that horrible disease. I pray that one day there will be a cure for Parkinson’s. I know he was welcomed in Heaven by Aunt Jackie with open arms. Im sure there was a family reunion as there are so many of our family already there. God Bless his soul and may he celebrate in the streets of Heaven with them all. God Bless Guy, Steve and Kathy during this time of grief. I wish I could be there. All my love, Zee.

    I remember us playing together during the summers I would spend with you guys growing up. It seemed like only yesterday. We once crawled up into the loft of a barn in Chocowinity and shot the hogs in their flanks with a BB gun to see them jump. It didn't hurt but must have stung a bit. Another time, we stole the Sears catalog used as TP in an outside John. Now that was mean. It was mischievous but typical mischief for a couple of young boys.
