    Elsie, I’m sorry that I didn’t make the painful walk back to see ED when you asked me at the hospital. Then again I can now remember him as I knew him. I didn’t realize that the Memorial service was the last chance for closure or would have made an attempt to be there. We will miss Ed and his shop. If there is anything you need that we are capable of doing or full filling just give us a call. You have our sincere condolences.
