  16. To Barb and the family of Ed,
    My thoughts and prayers are with you at this heartbreaking time. Ed was a great guy. He did have a heart of gold. He was smiling every single time I saw him. Always fun. The love that Barb and Ed shared was something you don’t see often. Barb know that he will never leave your side even though he is gone physically … It’s so hard to lose someone suddenly… God took an angel from earth… Love and condolences to you.

  17. Can not find the words to express our emotions of the unexpected sudden passing of Ed. When you were around Ed and his wife Barb, you always had a good and happy time. Lots of laughs and memories you just smile thinking back on it. And always looked forward to the next time you were to have that next gathering. Ed had such a kind heart. That’s what pulled you in to Barb’s
    world and life with Ed. His love for his wife was so noticed when talking with him or you saw it first hand in their presence. We were blessed to have gotten to meet Barb & Ed through my brother & fiancé . We are thankful to have been able to make some happy memories with Ed &Barb to look back at , and smile. You will be missed. Barb, you and Ed are in our thoughts and Prayers.
    love
    Chuck & Katrina Swanger. Also , Rose Barth.

  18. We were devastated when we read of Ed’s passing. Ed has been our heating technician for better than 20 years. He was a dedicated and knowledgeable technician. We always looked forward to his visits and enjoyed the time he spent at our home. When he did a job for us, we trusted that it was done correctly. He will be sadly missed by many.

    Sincerely, Don and Onnie Regoord, Irondequoit/Webster

  33. Many Blessings for you and your family Barb. Sorry for the tremendous loss and sending much love, strength and peace during this difficult time. Hugs.

  34. Barb,
    When I heard about Ed, I had to ask three times if I heard right. I am, we all are, simply shocked. I liked what was written above about Ed’s positive radiant energy. That is perfectly fitting for the both of you.
    I have this vivid image of you and Ed when Erich and I played a scramble together with you years ago. Ed had just chipped in. You ran to him without any warning and jumped into his arms. He had to very quickly throw his club down to catch you. It is one of the cutest things I have ever witnessed. Your immense love for each other was apparent to every person who met you both. We are so sorry for this tremendous loss.
    We love you.

    Anne and Erich Tausch

  35. Dear Barb,
    I am so sorry to hear the sad news about Ed. His radiant smile will be a cherished memory to all of us in the RSC whose lives he touched. My heartfelt condolences to you and your family.
    Regards,
    Marilyn

  36. Dear Barb, sincere condolences on your unimaginable loss. You and Ed are treasured friends of our family. You were so good to our Mom and Dad and then Bernie during their illnesses. I will never forget that.

    I hope the gates of heaven accept takeout from Otto Tomattos.
