I worked with Ed at the USPS-AMC from 2003-2006. I had come to know Ed through work and later friendship, like so many at work we all cared about Ed as he cared about so many in his life.
Ed was the "caregiver" of so many in his life ... wife, grandchildren and his extended family. Ed truely and most dearly cherished his family.
The brightest light of his entire life were/have been and will always be his grandchildren.
Ed was the most kind hearted, gentle spirited and genuine person I've ever known. Ed always burned the candle at both ends and we all worried that he never got enough sleep and reminded him to take better care of himself, but Ed was selfless and slowing down wasn't something he did, for himself.
I am so thankful for the times when I worked with Ed and for the friendship shared all these years.
Ed was one in a billion, and will be deeply missed by me.
Special Message to Ed: "You were a blessing to me and I will never forget you and all the genuine conversations and kindness you had shown me, over the years".
God Bless you Ed on your journey home, you were an "Angel" here on earth ... to me and so many others, "Thank You" for all the kindness and wisdom ... there will never be another you.
