Brother Ed you were one of the riches men we knew not in money but you were Loved by everyone that made you rich. We can remember you teaching Sunday school and always being ready and willing to help anyone when we went to Church together. We have heard how you played the guitar at Church, you always did like making music. We remember when you lived on Cotton Road we would come down and we would be looking at and asking questions about some of the instruments you had. We also remember the train you had around the pond, you were so proud of it and loved to share it with all the kids. We know you are at peace and not hurting or worrying about everyone else. We know you had a glad reunion with your Savior, your mom and dad. Love you Rest In Peace Sweet Brother. Eddie And Dee Gill
