Edward used to tease me unmercifully about the nickname that our grandmother and aunts used to call me. I never got angry when he did it but if anyone else did I would become very upset. He was a lot older but always managed to find some time for his younger cousins. I also remember him coming up to New York to visit when he was in the military, arriving in his uniform looking really cool (or so I thought) to me the teenager at that time. Thank you for your service cousin as well as the memories. Rest in Peace and you will be missed. Pat

Hey Cuzin Edward, Every summer Mom would bring us to the house in Long Branch, we would jump out of the Windows run around the side of the house and do it all over again we baked sugar cookies and watched movies. You were much older than us but I always remember you smiling and and saying Winston taste good like a cigarette should. We would start laughing and you would go on about your business. I have never seen you mad, angry, or frustrated, but I always saw you smiling. Truly you will be missed RIP Cuz love you
