We are so sorry to hear of Ed's passing. Both he and Doris were staples of our community and amazing people. We will certainly miss Santa & Mrs. Claus at our annual holiday celebration, but feel good knowing that thousands of children over the years had the opportunity to sit with and talk to two of the most incredible people Kerhonkson has ever had to offer....God Bless the family, our thoughts and prayers are with you......Chris, Heather & David DePew

I just learned of Ed's passing and want to extend my deepest sympathies. I had the pleasure of knowing Ed and Doris since I was a child. They welcomed me into their home on many occasions and Ed often kept an eye on me while my mother worked. They were always welcoming and kind and their love and devotion to each other was apparent. As an adult, I was glad to see them several times a year at different town events and my own children got to share what they wanted for Christmas with Santa and Mrs. Claus. <3 I will remember Ed fondly. Heaven and Doris have gained their angel.
