"I can't believe it's been a year since my dad died time goes by so fast! In this year I have discovered a lot of things about my dad good and bad, however I can't verify that these things are true because " there are always three sides to a story mine, yours, and the truth" in my daddy's voice! One thing for sure I really do miss ya Dear Ol Dad! I still pick up the phone to call you I still hear your voice in my head! Your gone but definitely not forgotten your words of wisdom and your crazy quotes resinate in my heart eternally!"
"i didn't know u that long but i know your daughter my niece Adrienne Martin so knowing her i know u,R.I.P...."

"well looking to the photos of its life I ran across the one of those the family with my mother my two brothers John is in myself remind me of a joke who told my mother she look like moore Barker and his sons the we only black enjoy"
"This is a true story of one of Ed's many fishing trips. We had returned (to his house we were eating fresh crappies & Big Ed's trail potatoes. When I though someone was knocking on the door no one was their. The f one of the fish was still alive flopping In the garbage can now that is truly fresh fish"
"Ed was my Godbrother. My wife and I got an opportunity to visit with him in November after 15 years of not seeing him. It was a joyful reunion! We sat and talked about old times and a whole lot of fun! Near the end of our visit he communicated to my wife and I, he was very ill and he could go at any time. He said he found peace with the Lord and he was ready. It juvalated our hearts to hear his confession to God before us. To the rest of the family and friends, be encourage because he is with his Savior Jesus Christ. Knowing this it is well with me. I will always miss him."
"I am very blessed to have known you and been apart of the family. I was always treated as "good", or as "bad" as all of the other kids which made me feel like I belonged. I want to Thank You for allowing me to interview you for my class paper on the Vietnam war. What I will remember most about you is that you worked Hard, and Played Hard and enjoyed Life to the fullest!
RIP Uncle Ed"
"Rest In Paradise. ... UNCLE ED...I remember you telling us stories and me laughing so hard that my stomach would hurt... you will be missed..."
"You'll always will be missed,Fish man ,my friend, I'm so glad I had a chance to have you visit me in Arizona we had a good time relaxing..RIP buddy"
"Gone but never forgotten. Love always your nephew!!!! Xavier"
"For over 60 years of your life, we were friends. And although separated by distance, we always managed to talk. I will miss you buddy! Rest in Peace my brother."
"R.I.P Uncle Ed you will truly be missed."
"Ed you are now fishing with the angels..... And I can still hear you saying...."Girl you look just like yo daddy with hair, take off them glasses" and "You know you can't teach that boy how to be a man." I would look at you every time and say "yeah , yeah leave me alone Ed". But over the years I have realized, YES I do look like my daddy with hair and no I can't teach my son to be a man, and as you knew he is doing fine and you and all the other men in his life have helped me with that by whispering those precious things in his ear. Your laugh sense of humor and stories will truly be missed. REST IN PARADISE ED BROOKS......"
"Letter to Daddy
As the first man in our lives no one else compared to you. The joy and the sorrows we endured together will forever be etched in our hearts. The multitude of life lessons we learned from you, even when you thought we were not listening, have molded us into the women we are today. We are eternally grateful.
The reality of never hearing you say, "Baby Girl, Baby Girl, listen to your dear old dad!" makes our hearts heavy but having the memories is blessing enough.
Although some choices we will never understand our hearts can accept your good intentions. Life may not allow for human perfection but the heart of a daughter can overlook any shortcomings.
For a man to demonstrate strength to the world is easy but the moments of tears he shares with his daughters takes a courage beyond measure. Some fathers leave their earthly bodies never having shared that vulnerable side of their spirit with anyone, but with your daughters you were able to reveal your deepest thoughts, hurts, and regrets.
You walked through life asking others to learn from your mistakes. You offered unfiltered advice rather we wanted it or not. You shared a wisdom many fathers keep to themselves and for these reasons and many more we are thankful for being your "Baby Girls".
StayBrae and Drini Pooh."
"RIP Ed ,,,,,, I will always remember your jokes and story telling"
"From the boundary waters of Canada to the tip of Louisana we fished.
