Greetings Abeloff Family:

Although I did not have an opportunity to meet the man who made my friend half as great as she is, I had the opportunity to meet her--Amy Abeloff. Amy is a wonderful, genuine, and overall fun-spirited young lady. These attributes of which I'm had everything to do with having a father like Mr. Abeloff. During this tough time, I wish Amy and the Abeloff family, strength and peace.

Sincerely,

Maritza T. Adonis
David and Lucia Peregrim

Words can not express how deeply saddened we are to hear the passing of Edwin. Dave was a long time co worker of his and will always remember the best times with him. He was great to work with and great to be around. May you continue to shine in the heavens and entertain them with your love of music. You were the one of many sincere people we have ever met. You will be truly missed and the memories will never be forgotten. Prayers to the family at this difficult time.

Eddie and I were friends as children, teenagers and young adults. He never failed to make me laugh. The two of us used to love to dance together and shared many good times (a few not so good ones as well). Every time I reminisced about my younger days in Scranton, Eddie's name always came up and it always brought a smile to my face.
MAy he rest in peace.
