The entire family has been by Eddie's side morning, noon, and night. Always hopeful, having faith and prayers every day from family and friends. Cyndee, one of his sisters, has been driven in spending time arranging benifits. She along with the rest of her family spend countless hours setting up interviews with the media to show public awareness in Eddie's senseless accident and about motorcyle safty. My heart goes out to the entire Penkalski family. (always there for you Cyndee, we all love you at Macy's)

To Cyndee and Debbie, and Mom and Dad you are terrific! The continuous love and devotion by the four of you was so inspiring, and he was so blessed to be surrounded by you all.
Eddie's children Theresa and Thomas should always remember what a "great father" they have had! Thank you both for all your time and love that you put into these last nine months.
I am only sorry that I did not get to spend more time with Ed, he was an amazing brother. We will always love you and miss you every minute of everyday.
All our love,
Eyeball and Kathy xoxoxo

Dear Ed,

I really am amazed at how many friends you have had over the years! Everyone keeps calling and checking on Mom and Dad, and Deb and the boys. You really lived a full life, and you got the send f you deserved..Shelia made sure of that. When she put the sirens on she said "this is for you ed"! I learned from Debbie hhow loving and romantic you were. I also knew you had a "big heart" but just did not know all the things you did for others. Your family and friends made sure you went out in style!! We are all working hard on your "Celebration of yuur Life" that as well will be done in style!
Love you,

East Aurora, NY
