Beth, I am Ed's cousin Darlene Unbehaun Kellner and have only had contact with Ed via facebook. I've enjoyed seeing your family pictures and seeing Ed's big smile! He was always quite the character, very funny and full of life. I must admit at one time long ago I had a big crush on Ed. My girlfriend and I...ha! Even embarrassed myself with a letter to him. Oh what we do when we are young. I'm sure he loved all the attention. As everyone, I was shocked to hear of Ed's passing and I am very sorry for your loss. I am the last of the Unbehauns so I am representing the family when I say "I am sending you our deepest condolences". Praying for you and your family. Please tell Mike, Tom and David my heart breaks for them...those Kopshever boys were always quite the team...sending my love.
