I didn't know Uncle Ed very well personally, but I have heard so many stories growing up all about him and the great Little family from my mom. I had the joy of visiting with Uncle Ed and Aunt Mildred way back in 2015, where they both surprised me with their energy and excitement. I'll never forget him playing guitar and yodeling while Aunt Mildred looked on lovingly. He was a very sweet and wonderful man and my thoughts go out to the whole family. Brianna

Uncle Ed will be greatly missed by anyone who ever knew him. His kindness, his ready smile, his joy in the simple things of life will never be forgotten. The family all know that as much as he hated to leave them behind, he is thrilled to be reunited with Aunt Mildred, his sister and his brothers. What a wonderful musical concert is being played in heaven right now... keep on yodeling dear Uncle Ed. We love you and we will miss you. Betty and Craig

Mr. Ed or Monkey as I called him (because he loved his bananas) was so sweet, kind and so funny.. we use to laugh all day until I looked over and he was asleep in his chair, that is until his son came to pick him up and Monkey would flying out the door literally running to go get that meal.. I would always joke that he didn’t like the food where he was but in all honesty Monkey just loved to eat he would put down anything with or without his dentures lol.. you’re going to be truly missed Monkey Love always Niesha
Planning ahead is prudent. Call us now.
