I am proud to consider Ed one of my best friends. We met every month to solve the world's problems while he cut my hair! I truly miss those visits.

Uncle Ed . . . you will be greatly missed. You were always a joy to be around and just seemed to enjoy life to the fullest. As a kid, I remember you were like a fun-loving mad scientist always ready to show off your latest invention or discovery (like stringing all the basement lights together so one pull of the string turned them all on). Always in our hearts. Love, Patrick, Jennifer, and Finn Adams.
