Cataldo and Hayes explain, "While we can never replace Edwin, his daughter and wife will need to move forward without his physical presence and guidance. How wonderful would it be for them to feel the warmth and support of all who knew and loved him as they figure out this new life without him. His family and the communities of Ridgefield, Danbury, and beyond will miss him dearly. All funds collected will go directly to Edwin’s wife and daughter to help with their future living and educational needs."
