I have lost a dear friend. We have been neighbors for 48 years, shared recipes, and laughed so much. Ed was such a joy and added so much to our lives. He will surely be remembered. Rest In Peace my friend.

Ed was my co-worker at Delta, my friend and in the end, my neighbor. The time we had together was brief but none the less meaningful. I will forever value the memories we shared during our visits. Rest in peace my friend, rest in peace.
