Today's service was a beautiful farewell that I'm sure Ed was pleased with. The professionalism of Littles' and the wonderful tributes by the presiding family members and clergy were well said. Classical violin music and the organ accompaniment were beautiful. I could tell Doris was pleased.

My prayers and heartfelt sympathy go out to my friend and Sunday morning breakfast pal, Doris. Ed was well known for his fried oysters and coconut cake and his Membership in the "McDonalds Club"~~
