For many years Ed and I were the greatest of friends. We went out with our wives at least once a week for dinner. My wife and I have missed Ed and Lories since they moved to Maryland, although this move was best for them. Ed will be missed by all who knew him, but especially by his family. Our deepest sympathy to Lorie and her family. Ann and Greg
