I chose the yellow candle in remembrance of Deacon Ed's smile. I remember sitting with him in the kitchen at school and he helped me memorize prayers for class. I always loved going with my family to choose our Christmas tree on their farm, I will miss him very much! Julie Smith

Deacon Ed's passing is the end of an era for our parish family. He is enjoying his reward for a life of service to his Lord, but my heart goes out to the family and friends left behind. Love and prayers to the Christianson family.

Our heartfelt sympathy to Mrs. Christianson and family. One of our favorite memories of "Deacon Ed" was when he baptized one of our daughters 10 years ago. Her name is Tharan (a non-traditional Christian name), and when he was reciting the "Litany of Saints" he included "St. Tharan" and then commented, "If there isn't a St. Tharan, there will be someday!" This tickled all of us and we appreciated his humor! He will be greatly missed. Karen & Murali Sinnathamby and family

Godspeed Deacon. Enjoy the fruits in Heaven. Enjoy your rest in the arms of our Savior, for you have fought the good fight on earth. You help bring many to the faith and God knows you help many keep their faith...me included. -Dave

A few thing come to mind when I think of Deacon Ed. Firstly I think of his voice, it was soft and strong and calming. It had a wonderful lyrical quality that rung of laughter and truth. The second thing that comes to mind is his son Dave. My father and Dave were good friends when I was a child, they both played the guitar (Dad specifically learned the base) and they formed a musical duo called Southern Harmony. They sang old Eagles, America, and James Taylor tunes. They used to practice out at the Christianson Farm. The third thing that comes to mind when I think of Deacon Ed is Christmas Trees. For several Christmases (though it feels like a thousand) we drove out to the Christianson farm to pick out our Christmas tree. There were always other Sacred Heart families out there and we kids would play hide-seek among the pine trees. The outing always ended with hot chocolate and the smiling faces of Ed and Mary.

Aunt Mary, I am so sorry for your loss. Uncle Eddie (as we called him) was a great guy and funny. I'm glad I had a chance to visit with him the last couple of years. We were all saddened to hear the news. Sorry none of us in our family can make it to the funeral. May the Lord watch over you at this time. Janice Christianson - Niece

The one thing that I will always remember about Ed was that he was very straighht forward and always was there to help you to the best of his ability. He came in 2011 to our veterans event and he spoke words that we all could live by, and that was always "Remember your fellow man, as God wants you to celebrate his life as well as yours." My friend, I will miss you very much, you were as they say one of a kind, now you are in the hands of the Lord.
