  2. Dennis, Melinda and family,

    Please accept my deepest condolences on your dad’s passing. I remember meeting him a few times at your house when we lived across the street from each other on Santa Fe. He was very gracious and a very kind person. May your memories be with you always.

  3. I’ll always remember riding April at Uncle Edgar’s house, while he and my dad walked in front. I always hoped Catie would get the same great memories with him, but at least Ed and dad are together again. Probably welding fences and chasing mules and horses. I’ll miss him, but I’m happy to think he’s better now then he has been.

    WWe just heard about Edgar. I’m so sorry that you didn’t know how to get ahold of any of us. I loved Edgar. He was a kind and loving cousin. He loved Mother and Daddy and all our family and we all loved him. That picture of him; he sure favors Uncle Walter. I don’t have your phone number or I would call.
