Ed, (Kathy and Bill Bedford - Deceased)
Arts In Heaven (www.ArtsInHeaven.com)
is a family-owned and operated online Amish furniture store and, technically, a division of our family company, Educational Electronics Inc. Much of our site was originally guided and produced by our son Bill who was 43 plus and in a wheelchair with MD when he passed away on 10/19/2013.
I, Ed Bedford, manage things and handle pickups and deliveries to our warehouse for shipment by our Amish packer and shipper. 
We are a family determined to offer fair value and excellent service for the items that we offer. Please let us know if we fall short in any regard.
Our Amish Furniture is made in smaller-sized family-owned shops that are non-electric but have power-driven machinery.
We visit many Amish friends and Amish Furniture and toy makers weekly socially and for business.
All fitting of parts, finish sanding and actual design is done according to the rules of honest Amish Furniture craftsmanship.
We live and shop and visit our Amish Builders from our home in the heart of Amish country - Millersburg and Berlin, Ohio, both in Holmes County.
We also have Amish Builders in Wayne and Coshocton and Fredericksburg, among other places in Ohio, that we patronize and visit.
We ship from our warehouse via FedEx ground and freight truck with tracking and full insurance to the continental US.
Email is answered many hours of the day and night (10 am to 10 pm, seven days a week EST), and is usually easier for us to address your questions, but telephone message calls are still welcome.

Our son Eddie Bedford lived with Muscular Dystrophy for 13 years and went home to Jesus in 1980.

Our son Bill Bedford lived with Muscular Dystrophy for 43 years. He helped found this website. He went home to the Lord in 2013.

My wife Kathleen Ann Bedford - Married 56 years- went home to Jesus on 9/19/2022 and to our two sons Eddie and Bill after an Alzheimer's related illness. A friend said, "Heaven is rejoicing in her presence!"  Ed Bedford
A friend said:

Ed: I remember you and Kathy as you mourn her loss. You blessed her so beautifully as you worked so hard to keep her at home with you. She fought the good fight against Alzheimer’s and is at peace with her maker. You fought the good fight against Alzheimer’s with her and your halo may be waiting. But, you are still alive and given the gift of earthly life for perhaps several years yet. Enjoy them, celebrating the family you have loved so absolutely beautifully. 


One great reason that Eddie and Bill and Kathy had such full and productive lives was due to our daughter Sharon (Bedford) Douglas and her great help to us from her time as an infant. Her husband Dan Douglas stepped forward over 26 years ago since their engagement to add a level of comfort and wonderful activities for Bill and Kathy and me, Ed, first at their home in Michigan and later when they moved to Rocky River, Ohio! From almost the time they were infants our granddaughters, Zoe age 24, and Lucy age 16 were always there for Bill and Kathy, and me.

When Kathy went to the nursing home when I took ill, Sharon and Dan handled all the financial and bureaucratic details to get Kathy enrolled permanently at Ennis Court. They and Zoe and Lucy visited her there regularly with flowers and games and news of the family. Kathy was taken care of very well there and enjoyed the food and the staff and the fresh flowers inside and outside the home. She was happy there until her transfer to hospice, almost a year later.
