God Bless all his little girls, what a loss for the 4 of them...
To chukyr, I'm very sorry for your loss. Ed was a really great guy. He adored his girls. They meant everything to him. Please watch over them. My prayers are with you at this time. take care

The only thing that happend to the other driver was a broken ankle. Not sure what type of jail time the punk is doing.
I was just wondering if anyone was going to maybe help his wife decorate for the holidays for the children. I know its a tuff time but, the little ones don't quiet understand yet. I was in her position about 12 years ago. I do feel for her and just want her to know it will get a little easier as long as she just thinks of the girls at this time and know that Ed will always be with her to get her through. If nothing else the girls are what will get her through this. Trust me thats what got me through it...............................
