Judy & Family,
Judy and I met over 40 years ago, it's hard to believe its that long, we became good friends. I met Edward when I would sleep over Judy's on the weekend. Ed would always make you feel welcome as soon as you arrived. He would come right out and start talking, the first thing he wanted to do is give you a drink and a bite to eat. He was always full of stories, he was very interesting

I was so sad to hear of Ed's passing. I have known Ed for over 30 years. I first knew him as my father in-law, but over the years he had become a good friend. He was always there when I needed support or just someone to chat with. He was also a great grandfather to the kids. He will be greatly missed.

I am beyond saddened by the passing of Ed.
He's been a great friend of mine for the last several years. We met at Lifecare of Stoneham.
We were the perfect patient and PT team. Ed was unbelievably driven to get better and stronger. He was a hard worker. He had an infectious laugh and smile. We would meet each morning at work. I would visit him first thing every morning...I would serve him breakfast always joyful and happy and
