I delivered Meals on Wheels to Ed and Lillian every Saturday. They were the sweetest couple and were always so thankful for the meals. I know they were dealing with many health issues for years but always had a smile for me. I will miss my Saturday smiles. I"m glad they are together again in Heaven. Bob L
