Brandi and family, So sorry to just be learning of Ed's home going. Ed was such a great light while in Aggieland for the Lord's love. His attitude was great. We had some great times together serving in Aggieland with Campus Crusade other places. I am sorry to have lost contact with him for all these years. It seems the last time I saw him was years ago when sister Dee Dee - going by Cordelia now - and Dennis Kaspar lived in McKinney a short while. It is so great to read that he was obviously vigilant in his pursuit of Christ as a disciple and lived and finished well. I can only imagine the pain of loss and how much you, your family and so many still feel, I send out my condolences and know that when he met the Lord he was gladly embraced and can see the Lord Jesus laughing ....with him as he had such a contagious laugh....while saying to him "Well done Edwin, well done!" He now sees the beginning to the end of sorts and knows something entirely different - including that whatever the pain suffered here is forgotten compared to the glory he now beholds as the Apostle Paul reminded us. I know too that his children and you too will live to continue carrying the light and love of Christ and will accomplish that great purpose He has for you all. In Christ, Tom Joseph '83 Tom Joseph, May 25, 2020 We are so sorry about Edwin's illness and it was so fast. Don't think I've ever heard of anything so fast. You all are still in our prayers and we know that God is with all of you.

Cindy Jamieson, February 15, 2020 If God called us to be a light, then Edwin was a campfire -- his warmth and love made a lasting impact on everyone he knew. My deepest condolences. Avery Lee, February 15, 2020 Jeff met Edwin at Hardin Simmons in 1979 and encouraged him to go to A & M. Edwin was one of my favorite friends of Jeff’s. He was a great man of God.

Michael & Susan Detweiler, February 14, 2020 Dear Cynthia and family, Brenda and I are so saddened to hear about Edwin's passing. As we reflected on our rich memories of him, we could not help but say to each other from the outset that Edwin was one of the most encouraging, kind, positive, supportive, and deeply spiritual persons we have ever known. I know that when I met Edwin at the Texas A & M BSM for the first time he made me feel so special and welcomed me as friend. It was this gift of encouragement that he continued to pour into both of our lives through our time at A & M! He was a model for what it meant to care for others and help them to feel so special. His love for God was also such an inspiration. He made a significant difference in our lives. We admired him so much. May God comfort you and your family. Know that you are loved. Love,
Doug and Brenda Cassady, February 13, 2020 Edwin was in my youth choir many years ago when I was Minister of Music at Mountain View Baptist Church. He was very loved and a true leader. Sorry to hear of his passing. Praying for all of you!
Larry Stuart, February 13, 2020 Edwin. You were a wonderful friend to our family, and we will forever have a special place for you in our hearts. You were one of the first people we really knew in Texas. You helped us move in and were always there when we needed your help. God bless you my brother. Until the day we meet again in the place of eternal rest and salvation. Don and Christine Aaumu, February 13, 2020 Dear Cynthia, We are praying for you and the girls as you walk through a dark valley with many unknowns. Praying for the Lord to direct your path and give you wisdom and comfort for each new day. We love you and are so thankful for all the sweet memories we have with Edwin. He was a man of joy and great character. He knew how to make people feel special. He loved the Lord and walked in sacrificial obedience to Him. We are very thankful for your friendship! Love, Ned and Linn Ned & Linn Beall, February 12, 2020 I am so sorry for your loss. Tom Hardzinski, February 12, 2020
