    I’m so very sorry for your loss. uncle Edson was a wonderful person. I have beautiful memories of you both at my wedding and endless chuckles remembering how uncle E complained bitterly about having to wear the yarmulke at cousin Bills wedding. He had such a great sense of humor. He could make anyone laugh. He will be terribly missed. Take good care of yourselves. Your in my prayers. Rest In Peace uncle. I love you.
