  1. Ed and I were separated by miles but he has always been, and will continue to be in my heart.

  2. I am so sorry to hear about Ed’s death. It has been decades since our two families grew up on Castle Road in Geneva. Time marches on for all of us. Barb, I remember how close you and my sister Hilary were. And Mary, I remember you taking care of your Mother before her death a few years ago.

    Thoughts and Prayers are with all of you from the Anderson / Schenck family.
    God Bless,

  3. I am so sorry, Barb. I will forever think of Eddie as your little prankster brother. We’ve both lost some that are very dear to us over the years. You are in my heart and prayers tonight. You were the baby, Mary, and I never got to know you very well, but I’m very sorry for your loss also.

  6. Eddie was a hardworking, dependable, generous man of principle. He didn’t always say too much, but he never missed much either. He was a keen observer of people and his surroundings as evident by his wry sense of humor. Eddie was one of the genuine good guys.

  7. Eddie Lancer, you are truly one of a kind. One of the very best kind. Your family and friends will forever miss you. You were a steady and calming influence as well as an always reliable friend, over many years, and we thank you.
    And you fought the good fight. May The Lord bless and keep you close.
    Rest In Peace Eddie.
