  3. Ed, was such a wonderful man & friend to me. He will be deeply missed. I remember growing up and always going in the back of my moms house asking Ed to please let me use the hedge clippers….he Always said ” Yes with a smile.” Over the years I’ve moved to Pittsburgh but never forgetting Ed & Mary, it was like having another set of grandparents or parents. I’ve continued over the years to stop by and see them. They both always made me feel like part of their family which truly meant the world to me. Ed will missed but I hold his smile and friendship in my heart for a lifetime. I loved him just like my very own grandfather. Mary I’ll always stop by when I’m in town, just like always. Thank you so much for being apart of my extended family…I love you both. Brenda Pulice P.S. Thanks for the parking space!!
