I only met Ed once in The Villages, but I have known Jeanette for over three years, and she took such loving care of Ed while he was sick, and her attitude was always one of seeing the glass half full, or if possible I'd say "totally full"! The most amazing thing was she was present with him ALWAYS, very protective, an amazing advocate, and grateful for everyone who helped them along the way. Gratitude is the way she lives her life, and the way they seemed to live their life together. He was blessed indeed to have her for a loving caregiver as she is such a Light in this world!

My husband and I are neighbors and friends of Jeanette and Ed here in The Villages, Florida. We so enjoyed spending time with him at neighborhood gatherings. The four of us had such fun dinners together and playing beer bingo! We loved his amazing sense of humor, his infectious laugh, and his kind heart. He and I shared a love of crossword puzzles, but I could never keep up with him! We miss his intelligence, stories, and smiling face. RIP our friend.

Ruthie and I first met Ed almost twenty-four years ago when he accompanied my sister Jeanette to our wedding. He didn't know he would play a part in the wedding when he lent me his lighter to light the unity candle. We always enjoyed our visits with Ed and Jeanette in Long Island and Florida. One time when they visited us in Maine we gave them lobster, but Ed pointed out that the lobster was still alive. He always had a great sense of humor and I always appreciated how well he treated my sister. We were honored to be with Ed on the day he passed away, with peace and contentment on a beautiful day. We will all miss Ed a great deal.
