He lived life to the fullest. Edward enjoyed visiting with family, coon hunting, fishing, camping, and pretty much anything having to do with the outdoors. He was loved by anyone who met him. Even on his worst day, he would conjur up that big beautiful smile of his. Edward met the love of his life on January 27, 1996. He and Connie had a love like no other. Connie changed his life for the better and was with him until the end. Edward loved his church family, but most of all he loved God. If he were here today, Edward would tell you that the best decision he ever made was accepting and loving God.
