I know the Gartner family and friends have saddened hearts because of losing Ed recently in death. When our loved ones fall asleep in death, the pain and grief seems unbearable. So I want to share this beautiful scripture where our heavenly father, Jehovah, (Psalm 83:18) promises us that he is going to do away with man's greatest enemy, death. Rev. 21: 4; "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore." When our loved ones fall asleep in death, the pain and grief seems unbearable. Our loving God Jehovah understands how we feel and he comforts us by means of his word the Bible. ." Jehovah invites you to throw all your burdens on him and he will sustain you in your time of grief. (Psalm 34:18) The Bible also enlightens us at Hebrews 2:14 "so that through his (Jesus) death, he (Jesus) might bring to nothing the one having the means to cause death, that is, the Devil." For more comforting scriptures please visit: http://bit.ly/1K38EFt It has provided me with many more scriptures that have given me comfort, strengthened my faith and helped me find the answer to Why? I know it will do the same for you. God's kingdom that Jesus taught us to pray for at Matt. 6: 9, 10 will bring about these wonderful promises including the resurrection. (John 5: 28, John 6:40, John 11:23-25) Isaiah 26:19 "Your dead will live......And the earth will let those powerless in death come to life." Isaiah 25:8 "He will swallow up death forever. For Jehovah himself has spoken it." It is my prayer these scriptures will give you comfort in your grief. Again, I offer my sincere condolences to the family.

To Julie , Eric, & Carey, We share with your entire family this terrible sense of loss with Ed's untimely passing. Having the privilege of his close and supportive friendship most of my life, I will miss him greatly as will all family and friends that Ed included in his circle of life. His great intellect, his strong ethics, and commited loyalty will be remembered by all of us left behind to grieve his death. He fought the brave fight because he loved his family dearly. I am proud and grateful to call him my friend. Ed and I did have some great times and experiences before we embarked on our separate career journeys, and remembering them will always make me smile.

19 Feb 17.....Gardner Family.....our deepest condolences and prayers to the Gardner Family. The Nieporte Family has known the Gardner Family for a very long time. My Mom and Marcella were lifelong friends from kindergarten. My Dad and Jack were not only good friends but also business associates. I had not seen Eddie since his Mom's funeral but talked on the phone since, but I did not know of his cancer. We will put Ed and the whole Gardner Family on our Parish Prayer Line.

Ed was just an all-around nice guy. Life isn't fair. And will I ever have Cincinnati chili again?
