Description
I was so saddened to hear the news of Ed's passing. I was very fortunate to meet him and his lovely partner in person at Jack's house and I have nothing but the fondest memories of that wonderful time. Ed was such a kind soul and made me laugh many times about converting to country....He was the ony reason that I would ever even consider that. To know him was to love him and I am honored to call him friend. Jeanne is a terrific lady with just the right amount of spunk to make anyone that meets her, like her - instantly. I wrote this song awhile back for another friend that lost his father. It has been on my heart to share it with Jeanne because suddenly it became Ed's song to me. I changed it up a bit from the original and hopefully it will be soothing to those that want to listen to it. I will miss Ed but I am convinced that he is stirring up tons of excitement in heaven! What a great man. I am so grateful to have known him and I also know that Jeanne will continue to be loved by all of us here.

Lyrics
I always knew the time would come
though I kept those thoughts away
and here I sit in so much sorrow
just wishing you could’ve stayed

But I know, you’re so much better
And I know there’s no more pain
But if I had one more tomorrow
I would say

I love you so, so, much
You mean the world to me
And as you go, just know
You’re always in my heart

A time to live
A time to die
So hard to let you go
I keep on thinking and wonder why
But one thing you should know

You mean the world to me and
I will always love you
As God in heaven holds your hand
Ask Him to help me through

I love you so, so, much
you mean the world to me
And as you go, please know
You’re forever in my heart

Forever in Our Hearts
I cried through the whole song. Not only because of the sorrow of losing my beloved Ed, but I felt the pain of all who have lost a loved one. This is so beautiful. I know Ed was listening to this song with me and I could hear him saying 'the days together are gone for us, but our hearts will always be one'. Thank you for the beautiful tribute to my Ed. We both are so thankful for this and meeting you last year. Bless you Gail
gail60 said 2155 days ago (August 28th, 2011)
Hearts are one indeed!
Yes my friend I can't begin to imagine the pain you must feel and I am deeply sorry for your loss. We will all miss Ed but our sadness is nothing in comparison to yours. Bless that heart of yours! My thoughts and prayers are with you and I am honored that you liked the song. Thank you Jeanne. If I can do anything for you at all...please let me

Ed-Forever In Our Hearts
I just took some time to myself before the afternoon gets really busy with preparing for tomorrow. I've been listening to some other songs this morning as well and I just know Ed is crying as he listens to these words. The only thing he worried about was leaving me alone. I love all of you so much...I am so blessed to have met you all. This is so beautiful. Thank you again, Gail. Love you.......
gail60 said 2155 days ago (August 28th, 2011)
We love you too
We really do! I was so honored to meet you and Ed and it will always remain as a very wonderful memory that I am grateful for. You are a great lady and I will continue to pray for you. Jeanne please hang in there.

evokes a deep sigh
perfect music
deeply touching lyrics
i love the timbre of your vocal as it
takes its time talking to Ed in a wistful, thankful, lovely melody

A time to live
A time to die
So hard to let you go

seems simple, but it's STILL hard
simple words, beautiful writing, sweet soulful singing
impeccable, Gail
thank you,
Anne

So Personal
Even if you had not said so in your comments, I would have known that you Knew Ed personally. Your lyrics, the tune you've composed, and the exquisite delivery are palpably from your heart, speaking not just with sincerity, but with heart-breaking honesty. There is no finer music than that which comes from the heart, and this piece finds its soul there. Such a beautiful tribute.

Beautiful
What a wonderful tribute. The lyrics take your heart apart, but put it back together again, too. Lovely piano behind the lyrics - just enough to make the words the focus. There are many things music can do - pay tribute, offer solace or help to heal being three which are shown in what you have produced here. Sublime performance.

Forever indeed
What words can describe how you touch us with how you feel about Ed. He shines through every note, through the vibrato in your voice, and through every word you so soulfully sing.

Thank you Gail for helping me know you both a little better, and for sharing such a heartfelt tribute.

Peace,
Doug

A Big Smile...
... is what our friend, Ed wore so easily and I'm sure this touching song brought a big one to his face, Gail. It's both simple and elegant, heartfelt and true. It really doesn't get any better than that.

It's a beautiful tribute, made even more poignant by your lovely vocal. I'm so glad that you chose to share this with us. ;)

What a fitting tribute
Such a genuinely moving, beautifully writing and performed song. I'd never be able to this - put emotions into lyrics and then perform a song like this.

I'm sorry to be so late with a comment and I hope it's appropriate to comment since I didn't even know Ed personally, but you really created a wonderful musical haven for so many of his dear friends when it was most needed.
