Mike and Craig and families
So sorry to hear about the loss of your dad. He was a super guy and always there when someone needed his help. One of the best people in the town of Bennington, always willing to lend a hand and help any time someone needed him.
He sure loved his deer and rabbit hunting and spending time with you guys for many years. As you grew up Kathy and I always admired the way your dad taught you both so many wonderful things along the way.
Sorry I am unable to attend the wake and funeral, I have been ducking around the virus thing with everyone else and so I am staying close to home in Florida. You have my deepest sympathy, your dad was one heck of a guy and he will be missed by many. Cousin Ronny

Edgar was quite the character and will be missed. I know I will miss hearing him say, “Here’s trouble,” whenever he saw me. My deepest sympathies to all of you. May he Rest In Peace.
