There are so many ways to describe Edward. In many ways he was a true oxymoron. I say this because he was serious BUT funny at the same time. Edward was a hard worker and loved children and family. He was fun to be around, and often the life of the party. Oh yes, he loved to cook and if you ever had the opportunity to enjoy one of his dishes, he would let you know “my dishes do not require ANY additional seasoning.
One of his favorite scriptures was Proverbs 22:6… “Train up a child in the way he should so; and when he is old, he will not depart from it”.
Sleep well son; we will see you in the morning.
