Ode to Ed!


Almost every summer since the kids were little their uncle Ed or Uncle Smed as he was fondly called would visit us during the summer and the 4th of July Holiday. Last year Ed only made it to Utah, he didn't feel well and decided to go home. In Oct. we lost him to complications of surgery, cancer and several overall health problems. This year two of his daughters (Debbie & Mary), Mary's friend Jean and his grandson (Aaron) and Aaron's friend (Wendy) came to visit in memory of their father/grandfather. This is a tattoo that Ed's grandson proudly bears on his shoulder. We lost Ed way to soon but his family so loved this man that they honored him with this trip to carry on his tradition. SMEDDER - WE LOVE YOU!
