    God, please stay close to Phyllis,
    And guide her day to day.
    Because It’s not easy,
    And you’ll need to show her the way.
    Help her as she continues,
    To live one day at a time.
    Please give her the courage,
    Allowing her strength each day to climb.
    To console with you each day,
    While deciding what to do.
    To look to you for answers,
    As you stand beside her too!
    Help her to lean on you,
    And hold you dear to her heart.
    As she begins this new journey,
    In which she must start.
    But God, do me a favor,
    When she lies down on her bed.
    I pray that you will help her,
    To be able to talk with Ed!

    With all Our Love,

    Dear Phyllis…..words cannot describe how very sorry we are to hear about Ed. We don’t even know what to say. We can hardly believe it. Only God knows why. Only God can assure you that he is at peace. We are praying you will be able to lean on Him as never before. We hope you find some comfort knowing that you are in our hearts and prayers.
    With our love,
    Larry and Brenda Huffman

    Dear Phyllis,
    Words can’t fully express how I feel about losing Ed. Sure we’re very sorry, but I’m just shocked that he did not pull through this. I will always cherish those early memories when “Beau” and I roomed together while attending Embry Riddle in Miami. We had some great times together. Phyllis you
    and Ed’s loved one’s are in our thoughts and prayers. God’s love and His caring hand will see you through this terrible loss. Just Believe………We Care Very Much about You.

    What can one say other than I am shocked and so sad. Ed was a good friend. I have a lot of fond memories while in his company at various NASCAR events. Ann and I will keep you in our prayers and know that we will all join him again for our victory lap in heaven.

    Ernie and I have been in GA for the past 9 days and have not had access to updates on Ed. What a horrible shock when we learned of Ed’s death. We had high hopes for a complete recovery when we saw him and Phyllis before our trip. To say the least, sadness has enveloped all of us who loved him and Phyllis so much. We now must concentrate on prayers for strenghth and comfort for Phyllis, Kay, and for each other in the coming days.

    Pat & Bob Benson

    Phyllis this is for you. I received this after Dave passed. I cried and watched you pass away, allthough I Loved You dearly; I couldn’t make you stay. A golden heart stopped beating, hard working hands at rest. God broke my heart to prove to me that HE only takes the best…. Love you Phyllis and my prayers are with you. Ginny

    It’s Mon, July 23rd and I miss my Monday morning phone call from Ed. He would always tell me how much rain fell over the weekend and how much the water had risen in the lake. We always covered the NASCAR race and what went on at the BAR. We would discuss his friends in BISHOPVILLE and talk about England and Lloyd. We covered it all! Please continue to use the BLOG to pass on condolences and memories.

    Miss ya Man,
