Sadly we’ve said good-bye to a family member who passed the milestone of 99 1/2 years of life. After coming back from so many stumbling blocks and minor health issues, the medical event yesterday was too much for Ed to overcome. A Minnesota man throughout his life, he enjoyed fishing and hunting, boating and snowmobiling. He was a large man with a gentle demeanor. His shared life with his wife Vi covered 45 years of adventures and travels. And as time passed by, they remained devoted to one another. I will always remember his smile and laugh – a laugh that erupted and was truly delivered from delight. The last time I saw him alive he flashed that smile at me and I couldn’t help but smile back, returning the joy on his face. Thanks for the joy you brought to us all, Ed.
what a powerful, touching story of a life well lived…thank u for sharing…Blessings and prayers.
Thanks for your words and thoughts. Hard to capsulate that length of a life. If we could all be so blessed!
