Joy and family - so sorry for tour loss. Uncle Ed was a wonderful man and I will never forget going to see Jimmy Buffet in concert with you. Aunt Grace and Connie. He is at peace. Prayers and best wishes to you all in the days to come

Ed Redmond was one of those unforgettable people who always brought joy and lots of laughter - and a willing spirit to help you out, whatever the need. His genuine love for people (and animals) radiated from his heart, and created an immediate connection, regardless of whether you were family, friend or stranger. We were blessed to be connected through my brother's marriage to his cherished daughter, Joy. And - because of that, we shared many rounds of card games at a kitchen table that often shook with laughter. God's Kingdom gained a soul that overflowed with love for his fellow man - and we are so grateful that we got to share in his time here on earth.
