Condolences to the Silverman family. I worked with Ed for many years and always admired his passion for the work he did with IDHS. He truly believed in what he did. His primary focus was ensuring that people received the services and help needed to successfully transition to their lives in America. He will be missed but that passion will live on through many others.

Ed made our lives fuller just by being our friend. He knew when to be serious and when to have fun. His wisdom and kindness will never be forgotten nor will his beautiful piano playing.

Our condolences to the Silverman family. Ed was a great friend and trusted adviser to the Chicago Commission on Human Relations for many years. He served as the chair of our Immigrant and Refugee Advisory Council, and member of our Board of Commissioners. He opened up our eyes to the plight of immigrants and refugees in our city, and help us see the face of those in need so we could see them as people and not statistics. Personally, I enjoyed his wit, and his dry, but wonderful sense of humor. He also really new how to wear a hat! We will miss him greatly. Our prayers go out to you.

Such a great man who served to give those displaced a home and a future. May his soul rest in peace. #voiceofdiapora
