Dear Lois, Sherri, and Erik;
I am so sad to hear of Ed's passing. He and I and many other Cranston High kids go way back. We laughed and laughed every time that we all got together. It was just three weeks ago that we all met in Garden City for some coffee and stories of the old days. I have so many memories of Eddy and all the fun that we had as kids, that I could tell story after story of those great years. He was a great man. Sadly missed; Bob Leonard

Although I have not seen Eddie much since our days at Daniel Waterman, we sure did have a great time at the Friday night 6th grade dance class! After class it was across the street to get a soda at the corner drugstore.
Eddie always had a smile. Lois, thinking of you and your family. With sympathy, Anne
