Celebration of Life for Ed Waggener

Friday, September 28, 2018: There is an empty seat at the family table and a deep sense of loss for you. May you be comforted by the prayers of loving friends, strengthened by the warm memories of your family's love and devotion, assured by the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ, and committed to carrying on the rich legacy of your family and Ed. He would want you to move forward in living a full and abundant life.

By Dr. John E. Chowning, senior pastor, Saloma Baptist Church
in Taylor County, KY, and longtime friend of Ed Waggener

Today we come together to offer our prayers and concerns and to take a moment to honor and celebrate the life of Ed Waggener. And that is no doubt exactly what Ed would want us to do - to take a brief time to celebrate who he was and what he did and then move on to the opportunities that are before us. The challenge in honoring Ed's life lies not in having too little material to share, but rather in how to best to give an overview to what is a remarkable life and a unique individual.
