I would like to extend my deepest condolences to you and the children and grandchildren on the loss of a truly great man whom I've been honored to know since my childhood years.
I even had the pleasure of working at various times, both for and with Ed on various occasions in the Highway and Heavy Equipment trade on various projects at times. You worked hard for him and gave full measure....but you certainly got all that and more in return from working for or with Ed too.
My utmost respect for him, and a deep and sad feeling of loss is what I feel now. I will certainly keep the family and everyone in my thoughts and prayers for comfort in your time of loss.
Ed was one of the first people to contact me personally himself when I lost my own Father, and I have never forgotten that kindness he showed me.
With a heavy heart I wish the family great love and comfort.
Mark J. Sullivan
P.S. I am truly saddened also for my daughter Nancy and her husband Chip and their family too.
