Ed and I were classmates of the Sacred Heart Jr High class of 1944. He was a person who was always smiling. Our school had a picture album for our class and Ed and I are side by side in my album. I send my condolences to his daughter and family. I will keep him in my prayers.
We were very sad to learn of your Dad’passing. He was a wonderful person! May he rest in peace.l
