Ed And Ann were our neighbors across the street for 34 years .Over the years we became very good friends .During the summer months we would sit out on the nice evenings and discuss all sorts of things. Ann became my wife Harriet's mentor when Harriet took up gardening. Very fond memories. Sadly just before my wife died in 2012 we moved to a rental on Reeves Street and contact with Ed and Ann became less and less. My last visit with them was cut short because homecare was there and things had to be done. Missed our contact over the years and will miss Ed's frank opinions on things . My condolences to Ann and their extended family.

Ann...It was with regret that I read of Ed's death. Many years ago we trudged together at the walking track in Coxheath. I would arrive early to be sure to meet up with him as he entertained me with stories and memories of his life and unbelievably terrific discussions of movies, actors and plot lines...he was such a charmer!! I loved those early morning walks and he made the walking exercise a memorable event. My thoughts and prayers are with you, Ed really was truly unique!!!! In sympathy, Valerie Bobyk, Halifax.
