Beth and I offer our sincere condolences to our good friend Pat and the Allen family. Although we've only known Ed for a couple of years, from our summers at Amston Lake, we will surely miss the fun filled evenings of games and card playing. His passing will leave a lasting void in our lake experience. I, John, will miss the engaging conversations , some serious,… world events and the Red Sox, some whimsical, like our Stop and Shop parallels-- ( me [a bagger in HS] vs. “ ED [“the management”] ), and the occasional ‘card trick' , but most of all , the combination of “the Jeepster “ and “the Speedster” at local cruise nights both of us enjoyed. Ed., Rest in Peace…..
