  • We met Edwin 2 years ago after his precious daughter Emmy died. He was kind, humble, interesting, compassionate, funny, and we marvelled at wearing bare feet in his shoes in January! We will miss him terribly at our sharing circles. We take great comfort in knowing that Edwin is reunited with Emmy. Together Forever. - Posted by: The Compassionate Friends (friend) on: Nov 23, 2015
