I am so very sad to have missed Uncle Ed’s funeral. I would have loved to see all of you and give my condolences. Mike and I were out of town and therefore greatly appreciate the online video and memory assist it provides. I know Uncle Ed is doing fabulous, I just want to say that I am thinking of the rest of you.
