Condolence from Helyne and Lee Carlson on April 12th, 2022 5:18 pm

Ed loved his family and the Lord. He will be missed in so many church functions and the Souls feedings. We are sending prayers and love to Dottie and Carrie. May your hearts be filled with many beautiful memories.

Condolence from Mark C Smedley MD on April 12th, 2022 6:09 pm

Dottie and Carrie,
You both know how much Sharon and I loved and respected Ed not only as a dear friend to both of us, but a respected mentor to me in all things Porsche. Although we ended up on opposite coasts, I always found it a bit ironic that although separated by a few thousand miles we both became cycling and espresso junkies. I will miss his Southern witicisms and stories. So many laughs and memories. See you down the road my dearest friend. Mark &Sharon Smedley, Loomis, CA

To witness his dedication to being in Morning Prayer was very inspiring.
It was evident that Mr. Ed has a Personal Relationship with Jesus.
I’m confident that he will be riding his bike in Heaven and having a Joyful time.. for eternity..

Dottie and Carrie,

I am thinking about you both, and am so thankful for Ed and all he has done in his time with us… he – and you two – have been so supportive and impactful in my life, especially in darker times, and I regret that I haven’t had a proper chance to spend time with you and thank you.
I have such fond memories of Ed, and of you two, and wanted to reach out in gratitude for Ed and both of you, for all you’ve done for me and my family. I hope to see you both again soon !
