Dear Bleaken Family,

Your husband and father was incredibly tolerant during all those band rehearsals that would shake the house back in Clifton. Without the support and patience of the entire Bleaken family, we might have given up and gotten in trouble. Mr. Bleaken was always enthusiastic and gratious. He really made our world a better place.

Losing a loved one is always hard, my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
I am sure you have many happy memories of Ed. I can still picture him walking into my office, always with a smile and some profound words as well.
Take care of yourself

[b]Dear Connie and family,
I truly am sorry to read of Eddie's passing and my heartfelt sympathy goes out to each of you. I remember in my early days at MBG&YC of watching him jog the boulevard. He led by example, always had a kind word and smile, and was a delight to know. Be strong and may the void in your lives be soon replaced with the many fond memories you shared.
My best to all, Jean
