You have been the best father in law a shy girl could ask for. My first memory of meeting you is sitting on the couch. I was having dinner with the family for the first time and I was very nervous.

I laughed and said "No sir he doesn't".  
His love for God, his family was always evident by his hard work and joy when anyone walked through the door.  Heaven is so much sweeter now. I love and thank you Mr. Childs for making me feel like a part of the family.

Sorry to hear about Bro. Ed passing but I know he is with the Lord he loves and lived for.
Ed was a good friend and he had a way of letting you know that you meant much to him. He always spoke to me with a smile and a special light in his eyes.
Looking for that day we will be together again in heaven.
Love and prayers for the family.

Our prayers for you during your time of bereavement is peace and assurance in knowing that we will see him again... on the other side!
Love and prayers for you all.
