Diane, Michael and family, We are so very sorry to hear of Ed's passing. Yours was such a kind, loving and comfortable family that seemed to always "be there" during our boys' school years. We wrapped a lot of Christmas gifts, served up a lot of hot lunches and washed a lot of dishes together. We cherish those memories and the friendship we shared with you. May your memories of this wonderful man comfort you during the difficult times.
