  1. Dear Aunt Ethel & Family My thoughts & prayers are with you all, he sure will be missed. He is in a better place now, we all have great memories of this great guy. For me is when we went some where with Uncle Ed he had his camara by he side, we all had to put smiles on our face. We didn’t know when he would take our picture. When my family came up to vist we had great meals with the Kuehlewind’s then at the end of the meal we would have our gravy bread, that Uncle Ed showed me. Love Randy M. and Jenee Becker (Girl Friend)

  2. So sorry to hear of Ed’s passing. I think he was my grandfathers brother Ewald and other brother Otto. Don’t know what happened to the family back then but was never able to met many of the Kuehlewinds on that side of the family. Our prayers are with you all. Mike & Ellen Kuehlewind
