All of the Lansing Family Mike and Bonnie Sheree and Fred and Patti and Bob, and Diane.

The lights of Heaven will shine brighter here on earth. Ed was caring individual and most helpful down at Mids Lumber in Quincy. He enjoyed telling great stories, and laughing with you. Earth has lost a treasure, and heaven has gained one. Our prayers are with you and the family.
