    I don’t remember a time when Ed Bennett was not a part of my life. He has been there with us all through the many ups and downs of life. I will miss him dearly and remember him as a person who was larger than life and had a heart full of joy and love.

    I am so sorry about the loss of Ed. When I remember him, I remember the thoughtful thing he did for me many years ago. When I had a difficult time during the aftermath of my 9/11 experience, Ed called me and we spoke for a long time. His words, his compassion, and his wonderful ability to be light-hearted at the same time, helped me. I was thankful to have him not only as a cousin but as a dear friend! I will miss him. My love goes out to all of us who will miss him.

    I am so proud of my brother and of the life he and his wonderful wife, Irene, built together. He was a vital part of the church he loved in Nashville (Grace Baptist) and it meant the world to me to see how he was loved in that community. He overcame difficulties that would have crushed a lesser man, sustained by his faith, his family, and his friends. I love him unconditionally and will miss him more than words can say.

    Irene and family,

    We were deeply saddened to hear of Ed’s passing. We could hardly believe it. I know that this is a very difficult time. Ed was a special part ot our family and will be missed. It only seems like a few weeks ago that we were sharing stories about Grace at the family reunion. Ed will be greatly missed. Know you your whole family are in our prayers.

    With deepest sympathy,

    Ed Maney, Carol & Ron Rexrode, Diane & Rob Rosseter
