|Let the memory of Edward be with us forever|
"Happy Birthday Edward. Still can't believe it's been 10 long years since you've been gone, but I'll never forget you. Miss you a lot. May your soul continue to rest in peace❣"
"To the family:
“There is an appointed time for everything, A time for every activity under the heavens: A time for birth and a time to die; A time to kill and a time to heal; A time to weep and a time to laugh; A time to wail and a time to dance; ....... A time to love and a time to hate; A time for war and a time for peace.” - Ecclesiates Chapter 3.
May you have more times of "healing", "laughing", "dancing", and "loving" than “weeping” and “wailing” with each passing year; and may cherished memories keep Edward forever alive in your hearts.
One day very soon, you will experience a time of perfect happiness and everlasting peace as you welcome him back to life!...... "When he had said these things, he cried out with a loud voice: ‘Lazʹa·rus, come out!’ The man who had been dead came out…Jesus said to them: ‘Free him and let him go’’”.....John 11: 43, 44. May these words from the holy scriptures comfort you."
"Hey I can't believe its been 10 years since you've been gone.... Your family misses you so much. Your sisters are smart and beautiful your brothers are handsome and respectful. Your mom is so courageous and refuses to let your death be in vain, she's truly a strong woman of God. I really wish you were here to see your niece born but I know Branden will let her know about her amazing uncle, her guardian angel. We love you Edward and you will live in our hearts forever. ❤❤❤❤"
"To the family and friends, the sting of death touches the very core of our hearts and emotions. As you reflect on the birth and passing of your dear loved one, may you find peace in knowing that Our Creator can be a source of hope and comfort to all during times of grief. He also promises a hope for those sleeping in death - John 5: 28, 29; and He will destroy even death itself! 1 Corinthians 15:26 promises, "As the last enemy, death is to be brought to nothing". I am very sorry for your loss."
Just thinking of you. I miss you, and for some reason, today, I love you more than I ever did.
The holidays are coming, and I will be thinking of you more often.
That is just fine by me, because I have nothing but happy memories of you.
Right now: i'm thinking of us eating fish sticks that your dad Big Edward made us while we are listening to Bone Thugs N Harmony in your room on cassette tape, and its 1994. :-)
Love your big cuz,
"Edward I was just sitting thinking how I still haven't took that fact you're gone, and how I'm just now finding out. My heart hurts I loved you. You were my first, and I finally found you & found out you are gone. I love you! I hold our memories in my dreams. I remember when I first moved to Michigan how it sadden you, we kept in contact, but we grow apart life & age and distance. I wish I would have known you died when you did so I could have came to see you. I love you!"
"Happy Belated Birthday my friend... we'd be the same age now.. Remember how we'd debate about you being older .. Nope you'd be 27 two months more than me. I just can't believe this happened to you. You were such a humble person."
"Edward I can't sleep. All I can remember is your beautiful smile and how I'd come home from school and open the back door and you'd be right there smiling waiting to help with my biology homework. You weren't a pervert or anything. The world was different in 2002 , I just don't understand. All these years I've been wondering how you're doing, what you've accomplished, kids, marriage and I find out your gone. I've always thought about you and your beautiful eyes, smile, and how smart you were. Every time we were on the phone you'd be interacting with your siblings. You were such a sweet heart. Rest my friend ! I loved you"
"I'm in tears now. I've been searching for you since 2005 and I had to find out you're no longer here, I'm in tears you were such an sweet, amazing, smart guy. I met you in Parkway in 02 when I was 14 you were 15. You helped me with my Biology homework you were a sophomore & I was a freshman. Gosh! I hate Chicago you've been on my mind all these years and I had to find out you passed. you were a great person to know & I never forgot you. We had good phone conversations, when I met you all of your braids were taken down and you were just wearing your hair curly. I pray you're in heaven ."
"Happy Birthday Edward the third!"
"Happy 27th BD Edward, I know probably would have been a great dad by now, Missing and loving you so much.
"Happy Birthday in Heaven...."
"My prayer and condolence to you and your family.. may GOD continue to uplift you during this time and keep his arms around you.."
"Rest Well Edward."
"We grew up together in the Rosenwalds, we were basically family. Just wanted to stop by and let you know that you were always a good person and friend that will never be forgotten about... Continue to watch over your mom and siblings, Love you, may you continue to rest in peace...."
"Hi Edward, you are definitely one of my regrets in life. I regret that I did not keep in touch with your Mom so that I could know you better. Your Mom and her family was there for me for a long time, and I regret not being there for you as an aunt. Everybody miss you, especially your Mom, which is understandable because you two had such a great connection and it was beautiful to see. I'll talk to you on your birthday, Love you."

"The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and I am helped. My heart leaps for Joy and I will give thanks to him in song. The LORD is the strength of his people, a fortress of Salvation for his anointed one."

"EDWARD...I am so at a loss for words right now... I know the "right" thing would be to say that "I know you're in a better place" and you are, but it would be so much easier for everyone if you were here."
