Aunt Jean, Phil, Sharon, John, Arlean, and the rest of your family our deepest condolences. I have many memories of uncle Ed from N Carolina, Kelly Stone, the Body shop, Gas station, and of coarse J E Enterprise. I remember I was 6 or 7 Ihad a loose tooth uncle Eddie says to me we'll tie a string to the tooth and door and we'll shut the door, I agreed. he tied the string to the tooth, he had a quirky smile and yanked the tooth out he laughed I don't think I did. We will Keep you and your family in our prayers as my Father would say Keep the faith.
