As a kid, Grandma and Grandpa's house was my second home. I grew up having to run from Grandpa, the tickle monster, walking slowly around a corner while saying "Fee Fi Fo Fum", or having to make sure that he wasn't hiding behind a door, ready to jump out and shout BOO. We'd wake up early on the weekends to get "Grandpa's Famous Chocolate Coffee" and sit out on the porch to drink it. I have so many good memories of my Grandpa. He brought us grandkids all over the place with him; he taught us how to drive the jeep at the old deer lease, the four-wheelers, and took us to the park, swimming, fishing, camping, out to eat, to movies - everything. He loved us and we loved him. I miss him bursting out singing or telling a silly joke or just being himself. I will always love and miss him.

I had the distinct pleasure of traveling with Ed for several years teaching Level One training classes all over Texas. Ed was a mentor to me and I was drawn to his Christian character and his uncompromising integrity, But oh man, did we have some fun! During one class that we were teaching, Ed declared it was time for a break and he flew out of the classroom. As the co-instructor, I was hanging back with the rest of the class when suddenly we heard a that of a rushing river accompanied by some strange human groanings. Summarily, we heard a loud toilet flush, all through the PA system in the room. You see...Ed had left his lapel microphone on and we heard everything! You should have seen him blush when he came back from the bathroom and realized that he left his mic on. The stories go on and on as are inevitable when you travel with someone long enough. I love that man and he definitely impacted my life. I will miss him but I have so many GREAT memories to hold onto. Ed is now with his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. He has no worries and is experiencing pure joy! I look forward to seeing you again my friend!

Ed was a friend and a special person. We shared many great times together. He tried to teach me to be a bird hunter and had some great times trying. I share some wonderful memories of time we worked and played together. Ed was a life long friend and was kind and there to help anyone. A Christian man that set an example. We will miss you my friend, but hope to see you in Heaven.
