Ed was a dear friend of my Mom and Dad's (Joyce and Tom Ball) who were all in a youth group at Community Church in NYC during the war. He was a big part of my growing up--we would travel to Englewood to see him, and he and the family would come to upstate New York to our house. Ed kept in touch regularly with all those youth group members over the years. Such a positive influence and inspiration to everyone he met! He had a joy for life that was infectious, a great sense of humor, and tremendous talent. I love that he was rehearsing a play when he passed--what a way to go! He will be greatly missed. Hugs to Binnie and Bill.
