The Klock family, We were so sad to hear of Ed’s passing. I worked at Vito’s for a very long time. I always enjoyed when he came in. He was always so nice to talk to. He also worked with my husband John at Keystone. He always spoke so highly of him. Our deepest condolences. May Jesus be with you all at this difficult time.
