My mother's cousin.
US Army WWII Veteran and former Fire Chief in the South Minden Volunteer Fire Department.
I feel very fortunate to have met my uncle in the summer of 2001, when my husband, daughter and myself were in New York to get my daughter settled at Syracuse University. We visited with my uncle and aunt for several days. I saw them each summer until he passed away. He suffered from diabetes and heart disease. Uncle Ed was a good, kind man, he loved his wife very much and took good care of her. They took good care of each other. Everyone I met discribed them as two peas in a pod, very close. They didn't have any children of their own but they had adopted my Aunt's niece as a child and raised her.
Edward and his wife ran his parent's dairy farm after they passed away. When they decided to retire, they sold the dairy farm but not all of the land. Uncle Ed kept a large portion of the land which was very beautiful. Situated upon a hill they would sit out on their porch and had a view of the countryside. I love sitting there with them, sharing stories and looking down at the valley. I miss my uncle Ed and I thank God for having met him.
