Priscilla and Kee, Sorry to hear about Ed. He was an important part of my life at MDOE. I couldn't begin to tell you the impact he had on the education of children with disabilities and their parents. Ed was a true advocate; in the regulations he put together,and his communications to the community of special educators. Ed and I complemented each other in our work styles that's why we got along so well all those years. It worked! Although it been years since I spoke with Ed, it seems like only yesterday. He'll be missed by so many. He was a wonderful and delightful person and friend. It was a loss to me and the Dept. when Ed left MDOE to go to Mental Health but it served him well. Best wishes and my condolences to you and the rest of the family.
I had the great pleasure of knowing Ed for a portion of my life. Having heard wonderful accolades about him from the Gov. Curtis folks (including my brother), I was pleased to have the opportunity to actually work with Ed for some years. A true gentleman, a scholar, and nice person doing good things for his fellow man, Ed just made you glad to know him.He had a sneaky sense of humor too, which endeared him to me and others. Ed Hinkley was a man who will be remembered and missed.
To Ed's family - I first worked with Ed as a colleague in the Div. of Special Ed., then as an interdepartmental colleague when he changed departments. He was a delightful man to work with, and his contributions to the children of the state of Maine are awesome. Please accept my condolences at your loss.
Priscilla...I will always remember Ed as a formidable and courageous advocate and doer for people in need.
Thoughts of you from very far away and am sorry for the sadness of your loss.
Priscilla, please accept our condolences. I loved working with Ed and years ago brining he children to your house for fun events. Ed was one of those remarkable people that if you are lucky enough, you get to meet and know. He was indeed one very special man.
Mrs. Hinckley and Kee, my deepest sympathies and condolences to you both. Ed was a wonderful man and I have so many good memories of time spent at your old brick house in Readfield. I will keep you both in my prayers. He was a man who lived a good life, one to be very proud of.
