Ed, you are my model of how to be a good human. Thank you for your kindness to me. God speed.

As many have said, Ed was a man with an incisive intellect, a warm heart and a great sense of humor. I was not a cognitive psychologist but he was generous with his time with me all the same as we collaborated on a project together when I was a graduate student in another program entirely. He spent many hours with me teasing apart ideas. He was a great mentor. To watch him teach was to watch a marvel at work -- so clear, so insightful. He will be missed by many.

So long, Ed. Of all great psychologists at Michigan, to me you were the kindest. Thanks again for your unconditional support and invaluable advice through all my years as a graduate student there. I could not have had a better role model in cognitive psychology.

Ed was my friend and mentor. He was a scholar, always supportive and curious about the work of younger colleagues. In a word, a mensch. I will miss him.

I've known Ed since 1969 when he served on my doctoral committee at the University of Wisconsin. The faculty had a voluntary coffee fund in their lounge and would post a weekly chart of funds contributed. Ed would randomly add or delete small amounts of cash so the books never balanced.

We maintained our friendship in the early 70's when Ed stayed at my house in Eugene OR and I at his home in Palo Alto. It was a great pleasure to renew this friendship when I joined the University of Michigan in 1999. I would kid Ed about his becoming a reductionist and he would reply that this was a lesser flaw than my becoming an engineering professor.

I will miss his great sense of humor and helpful criticism.
