    I worked with Eddie at Martin Funeral Home in East Liverpool from 1956 to about 1960. He was a fine friend and a gentle man. RIP, Eddie.

    I am so sorry to hear about Ed's passing. He was such a sweet guy. When Calvary and Anderson UMC merged, I had the pleasure of working with Ed on several committees. Each Sunday he would greet everyone in one of his assortment of bright jackets, which I just adored and complimented him on plus he would always give me a hug for the week. I have missed Ed since he moved North but have very fond memories of the time we spent at Good Shepherd. RIP Ed

    I started working at Martins in 1973, at the tender age of 16. Harry and Dick took a chance on me and Ed and I started splitting shifts, every other night and every other weekend. No disrespect to Harry and Dick, but they taught me the basics of professionalism, Ed taught me the reality of how funeral service works. I could hear him shoveling at 5:30 AM, Parking cones on 5th St. and chairs being set up by 6:30. And the cars - oh, he was the master ! He taught me the best method to wash 6 cars in 2 hours and make them look fantastic. Don't get me wrong -maintenance is not what Ed did. Being the backbone of a business is what Ed did. He was the best. Fly with the wind, Ed. I've been in funeral service for 45 years now. Thank you for what you taught me !!

    I am so sorry for your loss. Ed was the best. He and I played so many great gags on Pastor Church when we work at Good Shepherd UMC. He was such a sweet, kind gentleman. In the winter, I would find Ed in the basement of the church heating water for me so I could have tea or hot cocoa. The best advice he gave me was:" Don't get mad, you will just have to get glad again!" I will miss his sweet spirit.
