EDE – In loving memory of Hubert “Pete” Ede, killed in action, February 5, 1944.
We are sad within our memory, Lonely are our hearts today
For the one we loved so dearly, Has forever been called away,
We think of him in silence, No eye may see us weep
But many silent tears are shed, when others are asleep.
