    I am so sorry to hear about Ed’s passing. I know that Ed, as well as the family, have been through a lot these past few years. I always enjoyed talking to Ed cause he always said what I good job I did cutting grass and taking care of the yard.

    I hope you know if there is anything I can do, please let me know.

    Thoughts and prayers are with you Diane and the boys!

  3. Sorry to hear about Ed passing. Just found out today (5-31) from Mary Ann King. I really enjoyed visiting and talking to Ed and you at your home. I remember, at times, after I got off work, I would visit Ed in his office and talking for about 20 minutes before heading for home. Ed once in awhile would come into the plant and walk by and say hello. Enjoyed his company. Again, Diane, sorry for you loss. I don’t get the post. Hope to get info on his life celebration.
