A Comment By Me.... Dave Hemp (and also)
A Nice Email From a School Mate of Eddie's

Carleton E. Bigelow February 15, 1937 - February 15, 2005

At Ed's funeral in Palo Cedro there was standing room only all the way out the building. I don't know of one person that didn't like Ed Bigelow. He had such huge support from his family .... it was overwhelming. Terry Rust gave a phenomenal eulogy and I gave a few examples of Ed's and my similar wild and crazy sense of humor!
Ed, Terry and I all started out at the same time here in our dental careers.

Ed was also a life long Christian, in the finest sense of the word, that we have ever known!

I was so saddened to read of Eddie's passing. I knew he was very ill, but I couldn't bring myself to contact him. Eddie and I were best friends at Shasta College. I believe he was the closest friend I ever had. We didn't ever have an unpleasant moment. We studied together and laughed together. His smile was priceless. You remember that I had a reunion with Eddie when I was at your place with my cousin Mel Harris. I was thinking about Eddie right before I read your message.

Thank you for your website, and I hope to see you again when I come to Redding. Dave Walker (my birth name is David Lee Spatz) my email is ddwalker700@myway.com
