Cathy, Steve & Family

We just heard about Ed’s passing through a mutual friend.

We are so very very sad to hear of Ed’s passing.

He was such a kind and gentle person. We enjoyed his company very much when they camped at Cathcart Park.

Our love to all of you and thoughts of Ed will be in our heart forever!

Hugs to all of you!

Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this very very sad time.

Take Care!
