Dear Betty, Jack and family,

I am so sorry to hear about Ed.
He was a good man and I felt like
he was part of my family. He always so good to my dad and after daddy passed he and I had some long talks. I will never forget asking him if he would like to have dad's church clothes and he stared crying. I wish I could be there, but you guys are in my thoughts and prayers. I am sure he and dad will be thrilled to see each other.
Love always, Vikki
