They made many close friendships with other club members; these continue to this day as they attend numerous theatrical & musical performances throughout the year as a group. Ed also had a passion for traveling with Muriel. Friends from their former square dancing club often joined them on their vacations. He was noted for telling great jokes and will be missed by all who knew him.

    In Paradisum
    In paradisum deducant te Angeli; in tuo adventu suscipiant te martyres, et perducant te in civitatem sanctam Jerusalem. Chorus angelorum te suscipiat, et cum Lazaro quondam paupere æternam habeas requiem.

    Into Paradise
    May the angels lead you into paradise; May the martyrs receive you at your arrival and lead you to the holy city Jerusalem. May choirs of angels receive you and with Lazarus, once a poor man, May you have eternal rest.

    May your father Edward Rest In Peace in Paradise.
