Ed Fulghum - An honorable man that was dedicated to his family and his country. He was an overcomer who was always hard-working and honest. I loved his authenticity and his hilarious sense of humor. He will be missed until that glorious day when we are all reunited. My love to all the family and friends, and my prayers for your comfort and peace...
