I met Ed at St. Paul's Church in Neenah when I moved back to the area as this was our home church when I was growing up. I was an usher with Ed and I had a baby girl and named her Annika Marie. For whatever reason, I'm not sure why, but Ed was drawn to Annika. He always said that she had such a bright smile and that he loved her name, considering his wife's name was Marie. I did find out also that Ed knew my family, especially my Grandma Williams as they both were from Menasha. I left St Paul's when Annika was a baby, moved to Darboy and joined a different church. Since then, Ed has sent Annika Christmas and birthday cards that always included a beautiful note. Annika in turn would send back a note, usually with an updated photo. We did meet at McDonald's when Annika was about 7, I have a picture from that day. It always amazed me that Ed continued to think of and remember Annika. I regret not prioritizing more visits with him, what a wonderful caring man he was. Annika has saved all of his cards and letters and will cherish them always. I see he was laid to rest at Oak Hill, if there is any way of directing me to him, I would like Annika and I to visit and say our own goodbyes, my email is firstname.lastname@example.org. He has been on my mind a lot, and like everything, life is full of distractions, I finally googled him as we haven't heard from him in awhile...God Bless and thank you for the pleasure of having him touch our lives.
