    Shelby and girls
    Sorry to hear about the passing of Ed. We had not heard about this until I received a letter from Aunt Rena today. I know how difficult it is to lose someone you love and I do not know your particular circumstances, but if it was anything like the last year my mom(Janice) was alive(she suffered from similar conditions), you cannot wish them to remain in a life of misery either. My Dad (Lynwood) is doing pretty good. We miss mom every day. Holidays will not be the same. Prayers for your family.

    Our family is so sorry for loss of Ed, a husband , father, grandfather and friend. As I sat with you the other night and listened to you all recount stories and memories of times past, it was evident that Ed knew what was important in life, faith, family, friends, and a good sense of humor to go with it! Tomorrow, we know that you will be celebrating a life well lived that was filled with lovel…
    Our love and prayers are with you…The DeBow Family
