    candle 8Sincere sympathies to the entire Bathe family. Ed was a wonderful man and certainly more than just a customer to those of us at Eaton that had the privilege of knowing him. I will miss his sense of humor and wide smile. His pride in his family and co-workers was evident to us all.

    He is missed.
