Thank you Clarence. I have photos of that baptism event. Laura
Thank you Nick for this wonderful memory.
Worked with Ed for over 10 years, he taught me how to plow snow and how to fix all the equipment. We always talked about going to a landscape convention, but never made it. He helped me fix my car in the middle of winter in his heated garage. What I wouldn’t give to spend another night working out there with him.
Ed and I were neighbors when I lived in Racine, Wi for several years many years ago.
Ed and I had a lot of fun during those years working on cars and just plain palin around.
Ed was always a real go getter and never a quitter. He was always ready to lend a helping hand. He was a great person who loved to help others. He later served in the Army and for that service I truly thank him, in my eyes if you put on the uniform you are a hero. Rest in piece my friend, we shall meet again I am sure…
God Bless you my friend,
Thank you Clarence.
Clarence Schwind here, was a good friend of Ed’s father Steve, remember you well, you were the apple of Steve eye.
I was Ed’s God Father at his baptism.
Please accept my deepest sympathy, knew your dad very well, may he rest in peace
well I cannot say goodbye to you, so I say ill see you later. I am in disbelief still and will always miss your grumpy mood. I hope you didnt feel any pain or misery. You are the strongest man i know inside and out but you sure had a heart!<3 such a huge heart and a deeper soul. You taught me so many life long things I will never forget it or who taught me. There will not be a day that goes by without thinking of you.
You were the family tie that held us all together even when we didn't want to... you would've said "tought shit" I love you so much and miss you even more...well talk soon xoxoxoxoxoxoxox

December 17, 2016 I lost my world, my provider, my shelter, my protector, My Daddy. I love you so much, I hate that you were alone in your time of unhealth, but your little girl had to grow up. I will never forget everything you taught me about life and to be a good person. You helped without being asked, with your assertive personality- your way or no way. I would have it your way everyday to have you back just one more day to make sure you knew how much I love and appreciate you even tho I didn’t show my appreciation all the time. I never thought you would be gone so fast because you were always my big strong solider always came to the rescue when I needed you. Sincere and Amir miss their Gramps, they said they wish they could see you, but hope you are with Alex :dog: in heaven. Khalid misses you even though you guys did not always see eye to eye, he wishes to if had more time with you. Please continue to stay by my side, like you always have, you never left when I felt the world was against me. I love you and will miss you forever until I see you again. :broken_heart::broken_heart:
