Messages of Condolence

  1. Mike Kavanaugh condolence:

    Most sadly my brother Ed has passed. My deepest sympathies go out to Katie, Ryan, Linnea, Joey and Amanda.
    Ed and I shared a room for years as youngsters. Ed always included me in his activities by taking me along, in his safety.
    Riding on the handle bars of his bike to Maple lake at 8 years old, coaching me to learn to swim at our community swimming pool, teaching me how to play chess. As we grew older I developed interest in his old
    chemistry set, and electronic knowledge that nurtured me with incredible interest.
    In our teen years his influence caused me to develop an interest in playing the guitar as he did.
    Later on we took an unforgettable trip to see the Colorado Rockies which is forever a wonderful memory never forgotten.
    Ed’s bond and love for family was incredibly strong.
    We will miss his strong spirit.
    May God hold Ed in the palm of his hand…until we meet again .
    I miss you brother
