I had the opportunity to meet Ed about 30 years ago. What an impression he made!

I personally know of his intelligence, guidance, devotion, understanding, compassion, honesty and integrity to every phase he was associated with. Those who knew Ed knew what a great person he was and how devoted he was to his friends, neighbors and family.

He was a wealth of knowledge and if he didn't know something, he would research the subject and be able to speak intelligently about that issue.

Ed will be missed greatly but it is comforting to know that he will spend hereafter with Angels and Guardians.

Rest in Peace, my dear friend.
