  2. Thank you so much for taking such wonderful care of me. I will miss you very much. I know you will be watching over me as I fight this disease love your sister. Pamela Antonio Gadd

  3. I knew Ed for the past two years as a member of the Light of Christ men’s prayer group that meets at St. Ann’s parish hall on Saturday mornings. I was always impressed by his strong faith and his devotion to his family.

  4. My thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time. I knew Ed as a friend for many years. We had great times camping at Lake Waramaug with the crew from Co. 8. Although I haven’t seen him in many years, I will always remember his smile and sense of humor. He was someone I am glad I had thge chance to know. My sincere condolences to you …..

  5. Robin, Dave, Theresa and Family, My prayers and thoughts are with you… Miss Me But Let Me Go……. When I come to the end of the road, and the sun has set for me, I want no rites in a gloom-lled room, why cry for a soul set free? Miss me a little-but not too long, and not with your had bowed low, remember the love that we once shared. Miss me but let me go. For this is a journey we all must take, and each must go alone. Its all a part of the Masters plan, a step on the road to home. When you are lonely and sick of heart, go to the friends we know. Bury your sorrows in doing good deeds. Miss me but let me go.

  6. As a member of Company 8 I became friends with Ed and we had many laughs in each others company. Although I have not seem Ed in many years I will always remember his similing face. When I lived on Fourth Street Ed would drive by and stop if I was out in the yard doing yardwork and we would have a few laughs. He had an infictious smile and a quick wit. I was very sad to hear of his passing

  7. My condolences to the Antonio Family. My prayers are with you during this time. I’ve known Ed for many years from the rink and the firehouse. It has been sometime since I’ve seen him, he was always a kind and giving person. He was that person that everyone liked. Sorry to hear of his passing, but he will never be forgotten….

  8. My sincere Condolances to the Antonio familly. I had some great times with Ed during High School. We helped each other get through the .tricky times. of teenage life. We learned a lot from each other along the way. I am happy that Ed was able to give time and talent to the soup kitchen while on life’s journey. Memory Eternal my good friend and brother! -Tim Tassmer

  9. Today my world has stopped but people keep on moving, For they do not understand just what it is I’m losing. Someone I love so dear to my heart, Has from this Earth made his depart. Though many years of closeness have past, My love for him would always last. For I have also lost a friend, I often thought of, til the end. But we will meet again, one day, And together we will be, I do pray. Until that time I hold with me, a little piece of you, To get me through the day, with all that I must do. I will always remember the twinkle in your eye, So Dear Ed, Please Rest In Peace, My Angel in the Sky. All My Love, Wendy

  10. Aunt Theresa, Pammy and Robin: I’m so sorry I couldn’t be with you to help say goodbye to Eddie. I’ll always remember him as a warm, intelligent and loving young man who was always as proud of his family as we were of him.
