We offer our sincere sympathies to the Robert Edger family.

We came to know Robert Edger following our move from Evanston, Illinois to Drexel Hill, Pennsylvania in 1979. We worked on each of his campaigns during the ensuing years, and we followed his career after electoral politics. We so admired Bob's dedication to serving the public good in all his capacities of politics, church and public interest organizations. The world is richer for his life's contributions, and we are very saddened he has left his earthly grace too soon.

Sincerely,

Mark & Kenda Lundgren

Dear Merle, I am deeply shocked and saddened by Bob's untimely death. Please know that Rachel's and my thoughts and prayers are with you and the family in this most difficult time. Bob found so many effective ways to do God's work in both the secular and religious worlds and I have consciously tried to emulate him in the decades since I worked with him on Capitol Hill from 1977 - 1982. During that period when Bob served first as a founding Member and then as Democratic Co-Chairman of the bi-partisan Northeast-Midwest Congressional Coalition, he showed us all how to get the people's work done starting with high quality, non-partisan policy research followed by patient consensus-building across the political aisle and with often-contentious constituencies outside the Beltway. He was a vitally important mentor to me and countless other staff and Members - helping us all internalize and stay true down the years to a powerful moral compass. He has been and continues to be a huge inspiration to me and, I fervently hope, to us all. - Tom Cochran, Former Executive Director and Former Board Chair, Northeast-Midwest Institute

Bob always said "We are the people we've been waiting for!" A good and faithful servant is Present with the Lord and spurring us on even today, to make a difference. For the dear ones he leaves behind, my prayers are with you in the midst of your grief.
