Some of my best memories during my earlier years are centered around Ed and his wonderful family. Ed and Sarah always had a welcoming atmosphere and many hours were spent at their home listening to Ed's stories and spending time with good friends. I have often reflected on those days and realize what a positive impact Ed had on many of us. We have all lost a true one of a kind but the memory of those times and happiness Ed instilled in so many will never be forgotten.
