    Edward was my boss and mentor over the years, but more than that, a dear friend. He always knew what was important to each person in his life and took time to tend to all he knew as unique individuals. Every conversation with Ed contained thoughts about others and questions about how people were doing if he hadn’t seen them in a while. He also made me laugh every time I saw him, and I’ll be always be thankful he was a part of my life and will remain so.
