Dear Alicea Family,
 
May you feel the love, comfort and support from family and friends.
 
Jesus himself said “… I am the resurrection and the life…” (John 11:25,26) These words give us hope for the future, knowing that through Jesus Christ we can have the sure hope of seeing our loved ones again – happy and healthy. May this promise give you added strength to get through this extremely difficult time. 
 
With sympathy,
 
Lona C.

When the sun says goodbye to earth, it leaves a beautiful sunset as a gift. When friends say goodbye to each other, they leave mementos of everlasting and priceless memories. Goodbye my friend, I will miss.  Your friend Ponch!

My friend, my brother, my family.  My heart goes out to your loved ones.  Whenever we were together it was nothing but good times .  I remember coming into your shop hung over and sit in your chair and have you put the hot towel on my face and shave my beard with a straight razor and I would just fall asleep .  That’s how much I trusted you . I love you and I’ll miss you.

Edwin has left a foot print in many lives. It’s easy to think of him and have a funny story to share. His joy was infectious. A kind,generous human being. This is truly a great loss. My deepest, most sincere condolences to Ellane and the girls. – Denise Torres

My heart goes out to my Ann St family.  Edwin will be missed but never forgotten.  I will always remember the break-dancing on cardboard boxes in the street of our neighborhood, playing tag until way past our bed time, sitting on someone’s porch laughing, talking or just hanging out.  My best memories are with my family from Ann St.  My love to you Lilly, Carmen and Pete.  For Edwin’s wife and children and grandchildren-he was a wonderful person, friend and “big brother”.  Love, Susan (Kauffman) Baker

Mr. Edwin, teacher and a friend. It is not the same without you. Blessed to have known you. Heaven has another angel
in its ranks. Best class ever, and the music….always on point. It’s not the time that’s spent, it’s the quality of it. Thank
you for that quality time Mr. Edwin, may you rest in peace. Prayers and blessings to your family at this time.

I’m sorry to hear about the loss of such a great guy. I worked with Edwin at the bagel bakery back in 1990-92. By far the best worker there. We lost contact but my daughter tells me he was one of her teachers. Small world. Will miss him.

Hello, my name is Chelsea Bolden. I just want to say that I knew Mr. Edwin from beauty school,  he had a caring heart and soul. He always kept me motivated to finish out my schooling. Always came to school with a smile on his face   never would I not see him with a big grin. He was the light to everyone’s day. I really don’t know how to feel right now.  He just brought happiness to everyone’s sadness. Mr. Edwin thank you for making me be the best I can be. I don’t know if I could have finished the way I did if you weren’t there. You we’re one of the best barbers/cosmetologists there was.  You are what made me successful. Your changed my life completely
