Betty, Celina, Eddie, Peter, Mary, Lucy, and Joey's families,
You are well aware of how we loved Ed, our big brother and the Lashomb family Patriarch. It is heartbreaking that we cannot be there for his funeral due to very recent surgery for Bob. We pray that his funeral Mass can be streamed in order that our family may participate from a distance.
Ed was a man of faith and prayer. He loved Jesus and lived an exemplary life of Catholicism. Life without our visits and phone calls has already left a tremendous void in our hearts. On the very day Ed became ill, Bub received a beautifully hand written note enclosed with a prayer card for "before surgery". Ed left a legacy of faith, hope and, a very large family, each one a beneficiary of the love and wisdom he shared so often with anyone who had the pleasure of knowing him. We believe he has achieved his lifetime goal!
Love and hugs to each of you,
Bub & Cindy

Bub, Celina and families, so sorry to hear of Eds passing. He stood for me at Confirmation in the 50s and was a man I always admired.

What a great legacy Uncle Ed left behind. I know my dad looked up to him and their kindness lives on through all of us.
