Uncle Ed and Frances had 5 babies although 2 were stillborn and the other 3 only lived 1 day. They also had several miscarriages.
They were the best Aunt & Uncle us 5 kids could have had. We had a lot of great ones, but Uncle Ed and Frances lived close and sometimes we saw them everyday and Uncle Ed worked with the youth at our church on top of that. He always made us laugh and he taught us so much about the Bible and being faithful. He had many stories to tell and we had many a good time together!
I know they really wanted children of their own but they never let us see the sadness that had to be in their hearts from their losses. He always had a smile and a hug and words of encouragement ready for us. We were truly blessed to have had them in our lives and I know they are in Heaven now rocking their babies.
