    We were so sorry to hear of Ed’s passing. He was such a sweet man . He always had a kind word as we walked by his house. The whole neighborhood was in “awe” of how perfect his yard was, as he was always out tending to it. We are always around if you need anything. Please don’t hesitate to reach out. Take care of yourself!!
    Love John, Margie ,Kayla and Ryan Malone
