Ed and Nora were both big fans of Nascar. Nora was wild about Jimmy Johnson and they would never miss a race. Nora enjoyed sewing and quilting, tending to her flowers while Ed would watch professional wrestling. They both enjoyed Bluegrass music, working in the garden, and watching old western movies. For many years Ed would play the role of Santa Claus at Christmas time to entertain his family and friends.
They will be remembered by their family for their special smile, caring heart, a warm embrace they always gave and being there for their family no matter what.
