Gloria and family, Glo I wish I could be there to give you the biggest hug! Ed was such a wonderful person and you two were perfect together. I still remember your wedding day and the look between the two of you as you committed yourselves to each other. I was honored to stand by your side! When we arrived in Tillamook OR today my first thoughts went to Ed due to the cows grazing in the pasture. This is an area he would have loved to have seen and experienced. We are sending our prayers and thinking of you!

Gloria, I don't believe we have met and their were 14 years age difference between Ed and I but as a kid growing up I remember hearing him referred to as an "old" bachelor. Not sure what age that was but apparently his wait was worth it when you found eachother. So sorry for your sudden loss. My brother passed in June and I know he and Ed are reunited cattlemen eating fudge. (Both our Dads made pretty good stuff). Love to you all.

Jeff and Jane Stradinger


Jane and I were so shocked to hear of Ed's death. We want to send our love and sympathy to Gloria and all of Ed's family. Ed was so much fun to visit with and to talk cattle with. He was a natural born rancher. We know how much he loved his family and his Savior,Jesus Christ. May His presence and peace bring you comfort.

Dear Gloria and family, and all the Hawks families, My sincere sympathy to all of you! Being unable to be with you at the services makes this still seem so unbelievable, my prayers are and will be with you as you journey through the process of learning to live without him walking beside you.
