To all the members of the McGuire Family. It is with sadness that I write this note. I did not hear about Ed's passing until August 29, long past the memorial service date. My sincere sympathy to Hazel, Ed's children and his entire family. Please know that I have fond memories of being part of Ed's family, and at one time, being his daughter-in-law. He was always warm and kind to me and I am thankful to have known him. His spirit will never be forgotten as he will continue to live in our hearts! His contagious laughter is what I remember most! May you find peace and comfort in your healing days ahead. I am thinking of all of you. Maggie McGuire

Dear Eddie and Missy, I was sorry to hear of your father's passing. I will always remember him as a fun loving happy person. I have fond memories of your family and the fun we had playing in the carport when you lived on Kenneth Avenue. You may or may not know this but my sister Cathy passed away suddenly on December 8th from a blood clot and I am seeking legal custody of her daughter Harley. Harley's father has agreed as he has not been apart of Harley's life since the age of 3. Cathy and Harley lived with me in my house 195 Kenneth Ave, I bought the house beside my parents. If you are ever in the neighborhood please drop in it would be so great to see you after all these years. Please take care of yourselves. Cindy Martin
