Dear Cheryl & family,
I enjoyed working with Ed at Sprint Telecommunications Venture in the mid 1990s. He was a likable guy, interesting, and full of information, facts, and stories. I’m saddened to learn of his death. You have my deepest sympathies.

Dear Cheryl and family,
I first met Ed at Mr. and Mrs. Cue at 38th and Keystone 55 years ago! Exceptionally good person- I have kept in contact with him on and off over the years while living in Indy but have lived out of state for the last 9 years. Please accept my sincere condolences.
