Dear Linda and Family,
I was very sorry to hear the news of Ed's passing. Ed was such a wonderful man and helped me personally and professionally in many ways. Everything that Ed touched at work resulted in very positive results. Ed always had time to assist in personal matters when asked. My hope for you and your family is that you know many people loved Ed and have become better people because of Ed. I, too, can be counted in that group of people. My best to you and your family.
Ed and I have crossed paths on a variety of Oracle projects over the past 8 years, but worked much more closely in the past 6 months. I was always impressed by his professionalism and “dive-in” approach to his responsibilities. Yet, it was when we started working more closely together that I came to appreciate his personal commitment to positively touching everyone he worked with. He clearly loved his family and friends, but he carried that gentleness and caring approach to his co-workers, positively touching most everyone at Oracle he worked with. I will miss Ed, and will long remember him as a lovely person who by his ingrained nature provided a positive example to us all.
My prayers and sincere condolences are extended to Ed's family and friends.
I worked with Ed over an extended period doing project management for Mergers & Acquisitions - he was the ideal partner, bringing his can do attitude and enthusiasm to every issue so that they always got resolved in a quiet, timely no fuss and sensible manner. I enjoyed his sense of humor greatly and always looked forward to working with him.
To Ed's family and friends I extend my heartfelt sympathy and best wishes. He was a marvelous man.
I worked with Ed during his last weeks at Oracle. It was such a pleasure to spend time with him as he always approached his work with a calm and steady demeanor. Ed had a way of making sense of the complexity of his work. He was well respected by all who knew him and definitely the 'go-to' expert. When my husband, Rick, asked about a particular design question that would help in my learning, Ed paused to make the comment, 'your husband sure must love you.' That touched me, along with the other wonderful conversations we had about the priorities in Ed's life, namely his wife and the precious time he spent with her and his family. All who knew Ed took the time to tell me what an exceptional example he was, how well respected he was, and how saddened they were to hear about his sudden passing. Although I only knew him for a few months, our time together made quite an impression on me. My deepest sympathies and heartfelt prayers go out to his family and friends. I'm sure Ed will always be close in spirit to all who had the honor of having him in their lives.
