"So sorry that I was not able to attend Ed's services as I so wanted to extend my condolences in person to his dear family. Ed and I were good friends during his many days at South Harrison Elementary School. He always had a warm smile, a kind word and such an engaging laugh. He was truly proud of his family and so willing to share stories of Colin and Ethan whom I had the pleasure of teaching in first grade. I will miss Ed but hold many enduring memories of his fondness for the students, his family and his community. South Harrison has lost a legend and we have all lost a such a special person. My thoughts and prayers are with you."
"What a heart wrenching day for all of you. I can't express my sadness for you. I know he was sick and suffering and he is now at peace, but you've lost a legend. A good old fashioned family man of the earth and of strong beliefs. Please accept my heartfelt sympathy."
"My deepest sympathies go out to the entire Warren family. May God grant you peace during this time."
