Ed was the husband of my dear friend Marsha. I had the privilege of spending time at their house, trail riding with them both, sharing meals and laughs. Ed even let me ride his beloved horse Junior, the Matt Dillon horse. Much of his life was plagued with health problems but he forged on, never letting medical issues slow him down until these last few weeks. He was a strong man aided by a strong wife, a supportive family and many friends, all of whom he loved very much. Sad that he had to leave us so soon but I know he’s having good times now. Ride on Boog, ride on!!

Sorry to hear of your loss. Love the picture of Ed on his horse. I'm sure it made many smile seeing him doing something he so enjoyed. Prayers for the entire family. He was a good husband, brother and son and will be missed.
