48 years ago seems like an eternity when we first met at Redondo Beach. It was love at first sight.
Although married young, there was never a dull moment. We had four beautiful, intelligent children together — there is no greater gift in life than that.
I’m so grateful you were able to take part in your grandchildren’s lives. I’m sure they will have memories of that.
We had our differences and went our separate ways after 27 years but always remained close friends and shared the special bond of raising our children who have grown to become adults and parents with families of their own that I know you are extremely proud of!
Rest in peace knowing everyone will be fine — you instilled inner strength in all of our kids.
I’m forever grateful and would not change one thing for the gift of having these four kids and all the grandchildren in my life. You were one-in-a-million, Ed, and there will always be a place in my heart for you
