Dear Sue, Eddie & Jacquie & grandchildren,  It with sincere sympathy that I offered my prayers while Ed was ill and now for you!  I was in Tuscany & couldn’t post this sooner.  You know I enjoyed spending time with you at Levitt & Musikfest & the old days of BTAA.  May God give you comfort in all of the wonderful years you had together.   Prayers, Barb Seitziinger

So sad to hear Ed is gone. We were friends since early teens. We were what I now call the Willow Park Gang where we went almost daily during the summer months to stay out of trouble but occasionally would still get into some. Then came the draft and that was the end of the days of summer. Whenever I would get back home and visit friends we would talk about old times and everyone had a smile on their face when Ed’s name came up. He was a great friend. He will be missed by us all. Until we meet again Ed, rest easy.

Sue and family, please except my condolences on the passing of your husband, father and Pop Pop. He was a great man and loved by many. I remember Ed as a young child living with Grammy and he was quite a character back then too. As cousins we drifted apart but as a Krasnai we were always in each other’s hearts. May he Rest In Peace n be surrounded by Gods love!
