Edsel enjoyed cutting up and teasing his many nieces and nephews. He was known for being able to predict if the child to be born was to be a boy or girl by wrapping his arms around the mother, and he was always right. Edsel was loved by each and every one, Hawthorn, Pool and Warlick alike, but the joys of his life were Tucker and Joslyn.
