    Anyone who ever knew Ed already knew his Loving Heart. We never heard a harsh or loud anger come from him. He was an Amazing, Caring Husband to our Sue, and gave his all to her!. Thanks Eddie O! On a recent visit , he touched me in a way I will always remember. He knew we had been under a lot of stress. He said “do you know what COD means? My response was, collect on delivery. At that point he stepped close, held out his arms and said, COME ON DARLIN. This is Ed in 3 words We Love You forever Ed ❤️

    EddieO was by far the sweetest guy we have ever had the pleasure of knowing. Never saw him without a smile on his face and a big hug or handshake for all. He will be sorely missed by all of his friends and neighbors in Highland Golf Villas. Sue, we love you and will always be there for you. God Bless. Don and Judi Sawyer
