Ed was a kind and giving individual, and all that knew him understood this. Ed helped many of his friends with plumbing issues, and this is how he got the nickname of "t*** herder". He loved life, friends and family, and will be missed. Heaven has gained a wonderful soul and top notch "t*** herder". Cindy and I will miss Ed, but rejoice that he at peace and with loved ones.

I'm heart broke for my friend today. Our tight little group that had years of great times together, again has gotten a little bit smaller. But I will always have the memories that still bring a smile to my face. We had so much happiness in our hearts back then which we all so deserved and had sought most our lives.
You brought the smile back to my friends face that had gotten lost in the shuffle of life. You even got on a plane for the first time and traveled across the country so we could all be together to celebrate my milestone birthday. Of course the terrible flight home solidified the fact that you would never fly again. But at least we'll always have our stories from that Vegas trip and there's definitely a bunch.
We had our many nights of "ludicrous" poker that was hours of belly busting laughs. Even with a great poker face (which was your everyday, you didn't win many pots but always seemed to enjoy donating. Just good good times.
Then the year I thought was the worst year ever hits and lives are changed forever. We were still reeling from the unnecessary lost of our dear friend when your career ending accident happened.
So many things changed after that but even though life had slowed all of us down a bit, we still found time here and there to all get together.
I'm so thankful you and my friend came out to support me this past year after I returned to the stage after leaving it permanently the year you were hurt. It was almost like the ole days.
Just when I thought we'd already seen the worst year ever, then comes 2020. It's been one gut punch after another. Life changing on a daily basis with uncertainties of what tomorrow would bring. Never thinking it included you being taken away from my friend who had already lost so much this year. You must of been really needed somewhere else because you were taken from her much too soon.
Thank you for the memories, the laughs, the "ludicrous" poker, and most of all, the happiness you gave my friend for so many years.

With love and a heavy heart, Till we meet again.
Miss Lori Kay
