Edward will greatly miss by his family and friends as well as his many nieces and nephews. Edward did not want a big funeral, his wish was to be cremated and his ashes to be sprinkled out in the ocean, because he really, really loved the ocean. His special dog Coco will be cremated and sprinkled with him because he misses him so much, and he is so very old and not in good health anyway.
Special thoughts and our memories will keep us close together and though he is gone, we will be together again in Heaven for ever and ever.
Arrangements are in the care and trust of Baldwin Brothers Funeral and Cremation Society, Ft. Myers, FL.
