  2. Very sorry to hear of Ed passing. I was his account manager for many years and always looked forward to my weekly visits, lunches and friendship. He was so much fun , irreverent, hardworking and inspiring. When Ed was your friend, you had a great friend. He was proud of his family and spoke often to me about you all. So sorry and will pray for you all and Ed. Jeff Hassett

  3. Ed, you was my last manager. You was a good man. Sad to hear this. Rest in peace. Alex.

  4. Ed always had something fun to share to in his meetings. He had so much information on various cultures across the globe that he eased anyone and everyone into a conversation and made everything feel light and easy going. He was very kind and as my last manager he cared for my personal time off, as well. Something i see deeply missing in the current management, all the more reflective of Ed’s generosity. May he be at Peace!

  5. We miss you Ed ,A great man to work with and very jovial manager , May your soul Rest In Peace

  6. Ed, you were the most jovial and witty person I had ever met. Your personality and your smile always made people around you smile and happy. 6th floor BG office was never the same after you moved, and now all the lives you have touched would never be the same after you moved on. You will be missed, RIP.

  7. Janice and Helen, my heartfelt sympathies go out to you on the loss of your brother Eddie.

  8. Michele, I am so sorry to hear about the loss your beloved husband. Although I never met Ed, I see what a wonderful man he was as I read the previous posts. Sending my condolences and prayers for you and all the family and friends who love Ed. With deepest sympathy, Elizabeth Besch.

  9. I knew Ed through a friend and colleague at CVS who always spoke very highly of him and his cheerful and friendly nature. Ed you will be dearly missed, sending my sincere condolences and prayers to friends and family members.

  10. RIP, Ed. It’s been so long but we had such a great ride. I’ve always thought about you and I will never let you go.

  11. My heart goes out to Michele, Drew and Renee and all of Ed’s family. I met Ed 10 years ago when I started at Caremark and sat directly across from him.
    He captured my heart just like he did everyone who met him. He always had a smile and a wonderful funny story or bit of trivia to brighten our day. He remembered everyone’s birthday and asked about your family whenever he saw you. He was a unique individual and you knew you were the luckiest person in the world when you could call him your friend.
    I can’t imagine a world without him in it but am so glad so have met him and called him my friend. Love you Ed and will miss you terribly.

  12. Ed,
    My Friend no more suffering, you are finally healed! Truly you represented Christ in all that you did! I will never forget working with you at CVS for five years! Although I was a contractor you never once made me feel that way, you invited me to every celebration and made me laugh with all of your crazy stories ! Ed you would have joy and show concerns for others even when you were in pain and have difficulties yourself and this is what made you stand out in the crowd! There was never a dull moment when you were around and you had a heart of Gold always giving of yourself truly you inspired us! I will never forget when you told me about Juneteenth and here I am an African American and had no idea it existed. You would say “girl who told you about Juneteenth and I would say you Ed and with your Witt you’d say don’t ever forget it” I won’t my friend and I won’t forget how you made all of us feel! You were always so proud to talk about Michele, Renee, Drew and your grand babies and those stories would always bless me! Ed because of you I am a better person! Truly you are one of a kind! I will always strive to be great and more like our Heavenly Father because that’s what you did. You showed love to everyone you met! No matter what I will never forget you my friend! This has hurt my heart tremendously but I know you are finally healed and with our father so I will say what I know God said when you arrived! Well done my good and faithful servant! You have a new home not made by hands! Hold down heaven until I get there and I hope by then you will talk Jesus into getting us a White Castle up there!

    Love you forever!

    Michele, Renee, Drew and Family, my deepest condolences and know that each of you are in my prayers ! May God bless and keep you at such a difficult time!

    Matthew 5:4 “Blessed are those who mourn for they shall be comforted “

  13. My Condolences to the Family of Ed Piggot.
    When I heard of Ed’s passing I was very sad. I was introduced to Ed through a friend at CVS. Ed always kept a smile on his face and had a great sense of humor. He brightened the day of those he came in contact with. He will truly be missed. My thoughts and prayers are with the Family and may God comfort you during this difficult time.

  14. To all of Ed’s Family, I’m heartbroken on Ed’s passing. My heart and prayers go out to you. I’ve known Ed for years and worked with him at a couple companies, most recently at CVS. He was a patriot in every sense of the word in how he lived and loved life, a true inspiration to everyone that came in contact with him. I can tell you he made me feel special and always brought a smile to my face. I loved that man and will miss him very much.

  15. Ed’s was a gem of a person and it was great to know him. In Ed, I got to have the best manager and friend albeit for a short time. Ed was really kind-hearted and witty. He was always in high spirits and I’m so sad he left us. I just knew he was a true follower of Jesus. May the Lord bless his grieving family and friends. RIP Sir.

  16. RIP, dear Ed! You’ll be terribly missed at CVS/Caremark! You helped connect so many people at work and beyond! Our deepest condolences to the family!

  17. My condolences to Ed’s family. He was an amazing person. I met him a little over 13 years ago when I interviewed with him for a job at CVS. It was a great day when I got to start working for him. He was the best manager that I ever worked for and he was an even better friend. When you were Ed’s friend, you were part of his family. He will be greatly missed.
