Ed was such a wonderful Christian man. He used to have a water filter business in Earlville,Illinois. And was a pastor and the baptist church there. Had coffee and conversations with him on many occasions. He married my second wife. RIP Ed. I know youre in Gods hands.

He was the best Grandpa ever! When my brother and I were kids he would read books and play with us everyday. We loved spending time with him. He was a patient and caring man. Until we meet again, Love Tina, John, Marco and Gianna Colangelo

So saddened to hear of Edwin's passing. I am praying for the Holy spirit to give all of you: comfort, understanding and peace during this time of loss.
