^^^ CPT Ed's Wake...... As sad as a Wake may be this afternoon was one that Eddie would have been proud to take part in...hope he was watching from above.... the strong Higgins Family ...the old faces as well as the "younger" faces (that Ed helped shape into what they are today in the FDNY).....& the Prayer Service by Father Arcoleo the local Pastor from OHR which was punctuated with some levity & tailored to individual Higgins Family Members was very nice & well received by all......A fitting tribute .
