    Kay, Mark, Linda, Val & Vince – so very sorry to hear about Ed. The thing I will always remember about Ed is that he always took time to smile, say hello and ask how I was doing, no matter what he may have been dealing with in his life. He was a genuinely nice person and that is not something you can say about everyone. Please take a little comfort knowing that my family and I are thinking of you all during this difficult time.

    I am so sorry to hear this. Years ago, Ed, John V and I would go to lunch at the Point restaurant. Being a young guy at the time, I enjoyed listening to Ed and John , their wisdom and life experience
