We have loved Ed for so many years. We so enjoyed getting to know Ed and Linda at MCF long ago and we loved getting reconnected with him years later. Our condolences and sympathy to the kids and the rest of the family. We will not see you at the funeral as we now live in Oregon(!), but our thoughts and prayers are with you.

Lynnette, My heartfelt condolences on the loss of your dad. We have walked so many paths together, my dad, who recently passed was also a Korean Veteran and took wonderful care of my mom during her time with Alzheimer's. Know that we are thinking about you, sending hugs and prayers. Also, know that your dad is once again united with his beautiful bride and very proud of you and yours. Love you my friend.
