Dear Charlotte- Sorry for your loss our thoughts are with you
Jun 18.12 from Bonnie Thiers:
I attended the funeral for Eddy but only got to talk to a few family members. My husband Dick worked with Eddy for years and had so many stories of the pranks they played on each other and the fun they had at work. He kept my husband entertained but also taught Dick so many things about the job. My husband was also a Millwright. Dick said that Eddy knew more about engines and repairs than any person he ever knew. He could fix anything. My husband was very much like that also. Of all the people at Lapp, Eddy was the only one that came to Dick's funeral service at my house. I was so pleased and comforted to see him walk down the driveway. We visited him sometimes at the farm after Dick was off work with his illness and always got a laugh out of the visit. I am so sorry for your loss and know that Dick and Eddy are now together figuring out how to make things work up there. What a great guy. I am so glad he had Jennie to keep him company . He told Dick about her many times and said she was a good women who asked for little but gave alot. He said he was lucky to have her. To all those family members who I was unable to talk to I want to send my deepest sympathy . Sincerely, Bonnie thiers

Brother Ed, I hope there's a little farm up there for you! Thanks for being such a great bro, giving me rides to work years ago, letting me hang with you and your friends when I was a teen (much to our mother's disapproval). I will cherish the hug when I bumped into you at the store several years ago. I will miss your silly chuckle and smile but will see you again someday. Love to your great family. Your sister, Frannie

I know you are at peace in the loving arms of Jesus and in the company of all who have gone before you.... especially your son Marty, Ma and Daddy, and brother Pete. Sending love and prayers to all your children and grand-children who are missing you now. When I think of you, I remember you always had that smile on your face. Laid back, soft spoken, and easy going just like Daddy. Rest easy Ed. XXOO
