Dear Pat, Eric and Family,
I am so sad to hear the news about Ed's passing. My thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time. I can remember Prom Day as we stood by your driveway... and Ed was anxious to see if Eric had listened to his advise about being a "gentlemen" and he did - he was so proud of Eric!!!!

Sincerest sympathies to Patti, Eric and Family. I had the privilage of working with Ed and one could not ask for a better boss. It brought him great pleasure when speaking of his family and regaling amazing stories of his life. Even though we had lost touch over the past few years, he will be missed!
