Edward went to school with Michael at Gilles Plains High. Edward was the smartest kid at school without even trying and was interesting to be around. Remember for his love of music and his massive record collections, which was always accessible all over his lounge room floor. Edward and all the gang from the youth group nearly always ended up at the Marinna Pizza Bar on OG road after our youth session. His good friends Mick Noonan and Liz always kept us up to date on Edward life. We were pleased for him when we heard he fell in love with Carrie and her family.

His death was a shock, but we see it as his reunion with Carrie.

Rest in Peace Edward

Love from Michael and Dymphina

Edward,

Fond memories of the numerous Sunday afternoons spent with you in the Ziukelis household.

Remembered as a brilliant mind, an unrecognised expert in computers, a man with integrity, and a risk taker.

You took some big punts in life Edward, a number of them got you in trouble.

But the biggest punt you took – with Carrie – proved your best. And you showed us all that some punts are well worth the risk.

Edward, you did it too tough for too long! Peace at last!

With Carrie again forever.

Much love

Ramune

I have known Jurate for about thirty years and have shared many wonderful moments with her.While I did not know Eduardas personally I have heard many stories about him and am sure he had some if not all of his sister’s greta qualities. I take this opportunity to express my sincere sympathy to all of the family both here in Australia and in the United Staes of America and hope you can all remember the wonderful times you had with him. Special wishes to all of the remaining siblings as this is too soon like your losses of those other precious siblings have been. Regards Carol Farrar

I send you my deepest sympathies of Ed’s passing. I was very fortunate to have woeked with Ed at Verizon. Ed was a very loving and soft spoken man. A sadness came over me when we were told of his passing. May God keep you all in his care. As with all things time heals all things, even hearts. may you all be comforted in this time of sorrow.

My deepest condolences go out to you in the loss of Ed. We sat across from each other at work at Verizon for 2 years. Ed was by far the most pleasant person I have ever worked with. He was always willing to help anyone and did so with a smile. He will truly be missed. My prayers are with your family always.

My deepest condolensces to all the Grigonis family and friends in Australia,and to his extended family and friends in the United States.I find it incredible to believe that my longest frienship with another human being, besides members of my own my family, is over. I found myself reminiscing about all sorts of things that Edward and I shared over the past 45 years and felt very overwhelmed at the thought there could be no more. not in this life anyway To my dear friend Edward, I’m happy for you to be with Carrie again, and that you will be sadly missed. Thanks for all the fun and years of loyal friendship, rest in peace mate. Tony and family
