As I sit here with a broken heart I have been looking back at memories of a wonderful and great man. He taught me so much about compassion and being non judgmental. But I also have fun memories. Such as the time I walked in my sleep and fell down the stairs knocking pictures down as I went. Ed and Bev came running to see what on earth the thumping was. I was so embarrassed but later could laugh about it. I remember the dune buggy rides out on the sand dunes. So much fun. I remember my Dad always loved to hear Bro Ed sing “Where the Roses Never Fade” so that was the song Bro Ed sang at my Dads funeral. Last time I saw Ed and Bev was at my sisters house. We were having family reunion and they came. My heart was so happy to see them walking in. They have always held a special place in my heart. I wish I could have seen him one more time. I love this family. Sending love and prayers for peace to the family.

Ed was a simple man but very rich in his love for Jesus and his fellow man.  When they lived near Fife Lake, Steve and I spent the day with them and had lunch. After Steve Davis ask if they could play a little guitar.  Bev and I went about our visit but would stop occasionally to listen, what music to my ears Steve had his own bad is the 50s but that was the best best day for many reasons. The #1 being we got all that time with just the two of them.  Ed was and Bev is a very special person to my heart.  BIG HUGS to the entire family.  Our family has lost a very special man!

Uncle Ed, my all time favorite uncle!!! My childhood, girl-time memories are vast, deep, ever-lasting. You spoke deep into my heart with your genuine kindness, your deep intelligence and the love you clearly displayed in every arena I knew you in. I chuckle remembering all the fabulous cars you owned, worked on and drove. I smile listening to your voice as you play guitar and sing. Tears rush down my face as I listen to the piano, your voice filling the airwaves with praise. Uncle Ed, you hold the deepest spot in my heart, the core of me was shaped by the love you shared, the strength of character you displayed and your humor. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!  Aunt Beverly, Phyllis, Eddie Joe, Jerry and Jim, thank you all for sharing your dad with me! He was a very fine, gentle man. He will be missed beyond words. Love to you all.

Uncle Ed is what I called him, though he is my moms cousin. I loved playing music with him and he was a great song Crafter. An inspiration to myself as a guitar and piano player. I believe the piano is his favorite instrument and he played a honky yonk style. I love you Uncle Ed. Say hi to my grand parents and we'll see you in the rapture.  Billy

My dad, Ted Gutierrez Sr. and Elder Colegrove were best of friends. Dad would get a big smile on his face when he would see him. For as long as I can remember it was always a treat to see them come to Bryan and visit the church, APOSTOLIC GOSPEL CHURCH. I am certain that he helped build that church amongst other churches too. I just loved this man and most of his kids, lol. I'm living in Texas and if we were still in Indiana, we would be there. We have many memories, good memories, of him and his sweet wife. We live you all very much. I've got to stop b4 I start crying. Blessings, Rev Joe and Ronna Gutierrez.
