    So sorry to hear of “Grandpa Ed’s” passing. Although I only met him once, I had a great time visiting with him and wish he would’ve been able to come back for another visit.
    My son Timmy Beebe took a quick liking to him and looked forward to helping him at home.

Please share your thoughts ...
