    My deepest conolenses. I have known your parents all my life, and babysat you girls. Ed was such a good friend to Hank.

    Uncle Ed was part of my early childhood. As a playmate that didn’t exactly know that girls don’t play the same way as boys to a babysitter with a girlfriend that I could never keep up with. One of my earliest memories was how could he be my uncle and my mom’s brother at the same time? Just one of those puzzles small children have to contend with. Due to Covid-19 I’m afraid I won’t be present at any of the services, but know your family will be in my prayers.
