Edsel, you will surely be missed. We worked together at Tenneco for a few years, you were such a kind man, always had snacks and jerky in your bag, you would share with everyone as long as they contributed something back. I remember your prized pumpkin orange car with the 8 track still in it, how you loved that car. You kept us laughing through all those 10 and 12 hour days, your body hurt but you never complained much. I will always remember the moonshine you gave us too, that was some wicked stuff....time for you to go rest high on that mountain.....
