To Joan and the entire Ukrainetz family.
We were very sadden to hear of Ed’s passing this week. Ed was a pillar of the family, wise, thoughtful, and generous and we can all hold tight to the good memories he had brought to us and the laughter and joy we shared together over drinks in Tuffnell and our home through his travels and we will forever cherish him.
He taught us many wonderful things and most of all his wise words,”WE HAVE TO BELIEVE”.
Words cannot mend the heartache and emptiness you and the family must feel at this time and we wish you all comfort and peace.
Ed is now in GOD’S hands and waiting for us to join him some day.

The Bessas and Kalinowski families.
