Oh what sad news to hear of Ed�s passing. He was such an amazingly kind, caring man. He taught you well how to love and care for others. There�s a huge vacuum of love and kindness that has been taken to heaven. We shall miss you dearly Ed. And we know God has a new Helper! Deepest sympathy.

I am so sorry to hear of Ed�s passing. He was so kind and helpful to me when my husband Zeb passed away. Ed and Zeb were in the Masonic Lodge together.

We are so sorry to hear of Ed Constant�s passing. He was a great man and a great friend! He was honorable and generous, and lived by the twelve points of the Scout Law. Ed was a great Scoutmaster in Unionville PA for Troop 22 starting in 1994. He inspired many, many Scouts to reach their full potential. And he helped dozens of Scouts to earn the Eagle rank. He will be greatly missed and we remember and honor him. God bless The Constant family.
