Condolence & Memory Journal

Bestle Family,

My sincere condolences to the whole family. Ed was way too young to go. I remember Ed from work and from my runs up the road. He always had time to chat about his family and ask me about mine.

I'll never forget the year we had a bad storm many years ago and Ed came to the house to remove the tree limbs and a tree stump for us and take them away. He wouldn't accept a penny from us. What a wonderful, caring, and giving man!

I hope your fond memories and love for him will help you through this difficult time. We are here if you need us. We're so sorry for your loss.

Jim and Sandy Stickler

My sincere condolences to the Bestle family. Though I haven't been close in many years my heart goes out to you all in this difficult time. I spent many times with this family in my younger years and they taught me so much about being a family and how to just be a good person. Ed you will be missed but your values and wisdom have been instilled in many of us over the years. Rest peacefully.
