    Many good memories I have of going to the Edwards home with my grandmother on an Avon run. Always a good time and something I looked forward to. I am thinking of you all at this sorrowful time.

    To the Family,

    Our family is sorry to hear of Mr. Edwards’ passing. Please accept our sympathy for your loss. He was a very energetic, friendly person who cared about others. My brother and I felt good having Mr. Edwards as our friend, as well as friends with our Dad. We appreciated the fact that he tried to watch out for our Dad’s safety during the times they were room mates.
