My heart goes out to his family. Ed was a longtime friend of my Father and my uncle. He was a groomsman in my parents wedding. He always treated me like I was just one of the gang and I always enjoyed being around him. I hadn't saw him in a few months and for that I am sorry. My Father always spoke of how good an athlete Ed was in his younger days and just sitting and talking to him made me realize how knowledgable he was about baseball. He will be truly missed. My condolences to Mrs.Crystal and family. Bill Metz, Jr.
