God bless Ed and all the Braun family.
We became very close friends in the 80's and never looked back.
Ed was a true gentleman, father, friend , leader in the community and industry, and just an all around great person.
He did more in his life than most of us will ever accomplish.

We will ski Thunder Mountain again buddy!

Let's try to live our lives with a little bit of Ed in us.

Love from Lyne and Kevan Todd
