Remembrances

  1. My condolences to the family !…Cindys was family to Ed and he loved to come hang out and drink coffee with his buddy’s . Ed will be missed and my heart breaks knowing how much he loved that grand baby boy of his and was looking forward to see that boy grow!… he looks so adorable from the photos he’s showed me on his phone …. God bless the Babb family especially at this moment.

  2. Though I knew him a short time, I could tell that he loved his family and lived life to the fullest. I will always remember his smile and love for Halloween. My thoughts are with your family during this difficult time.
