Memorial Weekend 2016
My Dad, Arthur had two brothers Melvin and Edward and one sister, Millie. I never met my Uncle Edward because he was killed during WW2. But I knew him through stories my dad would tell me and I know that my Gramma Bertha and Grampa Max thought about him every day.
I always wondered what would have happened if he lived. What would he have been like (My Dad said he was a good kid.) Would have he have married? Would I have more cousins?

great Blog about your Uncle!!!
I am aunt Jessie’s daughter, Edna. Happened to be looking up information on Eddie as I was named after him. Came across your article and would love to hear from you. My daughter also visited his grave when she was in England. I am so interested to learn more about him.
Great post. My name is Edna and I was actually named after Eddie. My mother Jessie was Eddie’s aunt. I was recently looking for information about him and found your blog. I would love to get in touch with you and learn more about him. Thank you.
