My heart felt love to my neighbor's the McMahans during this time.  You all have always have been in my heart and mind.  I have wonderful memories of your whole family.  One of those memories, that stands out the most was during the blizzzard in 1978 and the generous heart of your Dad.  He gave milk to all the neighbors who were snowed in.  My family thinks the world of your family and how God used you to see God's love.
Thank you for being our neighbors.  Much love to you all.❤️

Carola,
  My condolences to you and your family.  It is times like this when we think of the connections people have in our small community.  Ed's mother and my mother where classmates at Richwood High School in 1927.
  When your family lived on E. Ottawa St. (You were a little girl.) and my husband and I were new parents, we were next door neighbors.
  Ed's sister, Priscilla, shared an evening class with my Aunt Ruby and me in Marion.  
  Later, you and I shared time participating in Master Gardner meeting.
  May you find comfort from your memories of good times past.
  Becky G.

To Eddie's family, We have lots of wonderful memories of Eddie, especially, through the fair board and through his children.  He was a proud father, grandfather, and, I am sure, of the great-grandchild.  He always had a smile on his face when seeing him out and about, joking with us. Richard enjoyed him playing cards at the Red Barn.  We are sorry for your and our loss.  May God give you His peace.
