Mary and family, so sorry to hear Ed passed away. We missed not having class reunions and seeing you guys the last few years, I guess its funny how after school we all seem to fan out all over the place. Pat @ I are so far lucky, we don't seem to have any major health problems. Again, so sorry for your loss. Denny

Mary, I went to school with Ed from grade school at Corse School all the way through High School. At Corse School Ed and I had a lot of fun doing "innocent" pranks. It was then we use to explore the old rock quarry, which was located near Ed's home. I think we may have met at one or two of our class reunions. Anyway, Ed's life and skills are to be celebrate. God bless you and your family. Jim Cooper, Class of 54.
