      Dear Carmen, Gary, Paul and family,
      Please accept my deepest condolences at Ed’s passing. I worked with Ed at the CIBC and also was part of a group that he car pooled to and from work. To say that these adventures with Ed behind the wheel weren’t fun would be an understatement. Ed’s gift at making us laugh ensured a pleasant drive along the 401.
      Ed was extremely proud of his boys and we listened to stories about their sports. Ed also was our advisor as to where to go for a good bargain.
      Ed was a larger than life character and therefore will be missed. My thoughts are with you Carmen at this sad time.

      My sincerest condolences to you all. There really are no words to fully express how heartbroken I am for you all. Eddie, his on target sarcasm and timeless humor will be truly missed. Carmen, I am sending you loads of love and prayers, I am so sorry for your loss. Gary, Kerri, Shayne, Aaron and Nathan, I can only imagine how you are feeling. I know how much you loved your dad/grampa, but I also know and we all could see he loved you all just as much in return. Rest well Eddie.
      Much love always, Kelli

      We are so sad to hear of Eddie’s passing. We will always remember him with love and never forget his wonderful spirit and fantastic sense of humour, especially were the Toronto Maple Leafs were concerned. We know he loved Gary and Kerri and he was so very proud of his grandsons, Shayne, Aaron and Nathan. We were very fortunate to have known Eddie. He will be missed.
