  1. Sending heartfelt sympathy to family. In my memory, Uncle Ed was one of the kindest, loving people I knew. A good husband, father, and role model for anyone wanting to be on the fast track to Heaven. We loved you and will miss you dearly…

  2. Sorry for your loss, Ed was a great person. Wonderful memories of both of you, Ed playing ball with the neighborhood kids, fixing broken bikes and just being there to listen; Noreen always in the kitchen with great cookies, and always listened to the woos of the day giving advice that I still follow. Thank you both.

  3. Rest in peace, Mr. Legler. God has blessed you, and you, in turn blessed your beautiful family. I loved growing up with your children, and still share in their friendship. God Bless All

  4. While I never met Ed. I know Gene and how much he loves and values family. Sorry for your family’s loss.
