    Sue I am so sorry to hear this. I wish I had some pictures to share with you but I don’t. I have you in my heart and prayers and can say I do understand. Ed was called to his eternal home last July and life has not been the same nor will it ever be. But I feel like he is with me with every breath I take and since he is always in my heart is still with me I just can’t see or hear him. I will pray for you and his loved ones to find some comfort and peace in the days ahead. ❤️🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻
