Ed was a class act; a constant gentleman and a gentle soul. Though our paths only briefly crossed, I had the utmost respect for him and he will be missed among his friends and golf buddies. I've heard it said, "Stories do not end. We keep them written in our hearts." Ed's memory will live on. Deepest sympathies.
