Words can not express the sorrow I am feeling for Ed. We all know our time is short here on this earth. Ed lived his life like he was supposed to. He loved his family and he loved his community. I never knew a more unselfish person.I can count the peopleI learned the important things in life from one one hand and Ed was one of them. I cherished his friendship.
