Dear Ms. Kate and Family,
We want you to know how truly sorry we were to hear of your loss. Please accept our sincere condolences to you and your family.
It is with deep sorrow that I and the Class of ’61 feel at the loss of a classmate. I enjoyed seeing Ed at the class breakfasts and at Wal-Mart while he working to help others. His loss will be felt by many.
Young family – We are so sorry for your loss. We pray that you will find comfort in the fact that Ed has gone on to be with his Creator! Ed was a very nice person and we enjoyed seeing him over the last few months at the Class breakfasts.

we are with the family .go luck
Dear Bev, Bob, Kate and families,
We were so sad to hear of Ed’s illness and death. His visits to be with us during my Dad’s illness were a lot of comfort to us all. We sensed his deep desire to bring each of us (including my Dad) a part of calm and peace.
We will never forget his care for each of us during that tough time in our lives. Ed and my Daddy, Wayne had experienced a close friendship that genuinely showed at that time. He also kept in touch with my Sister, Jane when ever he saw her about town to offer comfort.
May God be with you as you say good-bye to Ed this week. He will surely be missed by his family, friends and his church family. We join you by saying “Thank you dear God for his life”.
Love in Christ,
Carole Patrick Stuart
My heartfelt sympathy to the Young family.
It is with a smile I remember my very first date my high school freshman year; Ed and I double dated with you, Bob, and your steady date, Catherine. I never was quite sure who was more nervous, Ed or I. (But he never asked for a second date!)
Ed always had a smile for everyone, and I am greatly saddened to learn of his illness and death. My love to his precious family.
I would appreciate an address, Bob.
I have so many fond memories of Ed as we grew up together and played baseball for many years.
I am very sorry for your loss, but know you must have a wealth of wonderful memories to sustain you during this very difficult time.
May God Bless You and Comfort You.
Sorry to read of Ed’s passing. I ran into Ed from time to time in Nashville as we both worked there. The last time I ran into Ed was at Publix in Hendersonville, TN. Please accept my condolences.
Bev: So sorry to hear of the loss of your brother. I recall when we were growing up how he looked up to you as his older brother.
Our heartfelt sympathy is extended to the Young family during this time of sorrow. Ed was a dear friend and a good neighbor. We are shrouded with grief at the loss of this good and kind man. May your grief soon be overshadowed by happy memories.
It was great to re-establish connections with Ed at our Class of 61 breakfasts and other activities. Ed was a nice guy during our time at Central and an even nicer person after his career brought him back to Fayetteville. We’ll miss him greatly.
Bev and Family:
It is with sadness that I send you this note. I remember your brother only slightly, but I certainly remember your Dad and Mom. I too, am a member of the Sons Of The
American Revolution and all members or compatriots are dear to each of us.
Rest assured that he is in the safe arms of our creator and GOD and that he is at peace with all mankind.
May you and the family be comforted on this day and the future.
