I just read about Ed’s passing. I’m so sorry to hear this. I wish I had known earlier. Every time I pass your house I think of all the times we spent there when my kids were young and Myra baby sat for Nici. And how proud Ed was of his beautiful roses. My heart goes out to Myra and the girls. Carolyn McGarth, December 14, 2019 Rest in Peace.
