So sorry for the loss of a good man

Am so sorry to hear of the loss of a such a gentle man. I knew Mr Cooney as I would call him, always to have him say “it’s Ed bud” for some time. I, like others, will feel his loss. I will always have fond memories of time spent with he and his family while in Florida. I pray that God may be with your family through this difficult time.
