Ed and his mother lived across the road from us on River Road when I was very young. I loved to visit his mother, and was awestruck by Ed. He was so handsome, and always very kind to a little kid. He'd ruffle my hair when he walked by me, then laugh at my reaction. I lost track of them when they moved, but I still think of them often, because I still live in the same house that I lived in then! My sincere condolences to the family. They were good people and good neighbors.

Just picked up the paper and immediately recognized Ed's name. My husband George Zeyn also worked at Shipper's Carline. That seems so long ago. Sending my condolences for you Joanne and your family. Don't know if you happened to see, George just passed away on June 1, 2020. Take care and remember you will always have him in your memories.
