I remember walking with my father around tampa and driving back to New Jersey to see Amy , his granddaughter. I love and miss him very much. he worked very hard to keep us out of danger and teach us to love one another. He remembered us and had faith in us. He helped me get a clemancy for something I didn`t do.

My condolences to The Basaman family for the loss of Ed. I'm sure this must be a really hard time for you all as you are striving to continue daily without that loving call or visit. May our Heavenly Father provide comfort to help you through as you facing qhallenges.
