Ed was one of the nicest guys you could ever meet. He truly cared about others and always encouraged and supported his friends in all their endeavors. Ed loved his family very deeply and made them proud by serviing his country in a very unpopular war. Such a good man and a very special friend. I will always be thankful to him for guiding me to his family after many years of not knowing them. I love them all dearly. I do hope Eddie is proud of me and proud of his little sister, Ellen. We have become a family of the heart. We hope we always succeed in honoring his memory. He is missed so deeply and loved by us all and always will be. diana (peggy) starr duer cloutier

Ed was true to his beliefs and to his friends and family. Out of the ugliness of war, he found a reason to be in Vietnam and a purpose to the war. He felt what he was doing in 'Nam was important and that his contributiion to the war effort was vital. He was a very caring and sensitive man. He never got to experience the love of a wife and the laughter of children, the devotion of family and friends. He cheered on his friends in their accomplishments and never felt jealousy over what they had -- he was truly happy for them. Ed didn't die in vain. He wouldn't want anyone to mourn his loss but he isn't forgotten by his family and friends. I think of him so often and miss seeing and talking with him. Ed or "Mac" or "Doc" as he was called by many, is missed deeply. May he rest in peace.
