    I am so sorry for the loss of your husband and dad Ed. He had a beautiful smile and I always enjoyed our conversations. How lucky he was to have the loving and supportive family that he did. Rest In Peace Ed. Thank you for your service to our country. You will be greatly missed. Cookie Tyrpak. ❤️

    My prayers go out to the family and may God hold them in the palm of his hands.  May Ed rest in peace after leading such a good life.

    Eddie's Dad is my first cousin & we were always together @ family gatherings like picnics, Holidays, first Communion, weddings and even funerals. We had a rather large family with plenty of cousins all around the same age. We always had a lot of fun as kids however I was usually playing drums with my dad (Harry) & my brother (Danny) @ family gatherings. RIP my friend and may the Dear Lord Bless your family & Friends.
