I am so sorry to hear of Edward's passing. My sympathy to his family. I will truly miss seeing him at Turning Point and our Friday morning coffee and treats. My grandchildren and I will always cherish the Edward made toys we have.

Jane and family: I was so sorry to see that "Ted the Toymaker" has left "crafters society". However, I do believe there are enough toys to carry on his memory for a long time to come. He will certainly be missed by all of us.

Know you are in my thoughts and prayers. With love, Claudia
