I hope the Lord is with you during you time of grieving and help you all be able to celebrate Edwards' wonderful life. God Bless each of you! Tonya Miller
We have many good and funny memories of the times Ed came to load animals to go to South St. Paul. You can never say he was just a trucker! He treated you like a friend and was always willing to visit. Our family always enjoyed seeing Ed and appreciated the friendliness he and his wife showed us off the farm as well as on the farm. Ed had a great smile, shared wonderful stories and showed a smidge of mischieviousness. We have really missed Ed as our trucker. You have our sympathy for your loss.
