Growing up as a neighbor, The Walters family got to know Ed, Mabel, and family. We had lots of great times, with the immediate family and extended family and friends. I will always remember the many kitchen table games, the poker, Po-Ke-No, the Carom board, and many more. Prayers extended for all Ed's family and friends. R.I.P. Ed.
