    Barb – so very sorry for your loss — Uncle Ed was a great man. He was a very special Uncle.
    Always a smile for everyone. Betty just told me last night.
    I’m sure he is in heaven with the rest of the family — maybe at the Casino with my Dad and Mom and your Mom. My Bob is gone also.
    Love and Prayers,
    Margie Coonrod Hunt

    Our Uncle Ed was the best. He always remembered my Birthday and would call me to wish me a Happy Birthday. I have it on my answering machine. He watched over my Mom and Dad when they moved up north to Gladwin. When Dad died, he watched over my mom.
    It was great not having to worry about them. We will always remember Uncle Ed. A very special man. God bless you always.
