Beth Bacon Moeller, June 22, 2006 Ed has been taking care of our Lucas family since the early 50s. He was a great gentle giant. Before he was married he dated my cousin. When he would come to the house, my grandmother loved him because he would come to the kitchen table, eat lots of dinner and talk with her,Mrs. Lucas. He and Kaylei delivered everything from prescriptions to Elizabeth Arden perfume to candy bars to Unk Tully B. We remember the white "stomach" medicine and the nasty cough syrup that actually worked. He helped many people in East McKinney as well.God bless your family on your loss.He will be greatly missed. Mary Holcomb Dickerson, June 22, 2006 What a great guy!
