I know well of Ed thru the many lovely stories Maureen would relate of their life together. What a fine man and what a great companion for Maureen and all their furr babies. It’s hard to believe he’s gone and I know he is greatly missed by all his beloved family members and friends and coworkers.

“But that is the dual gift of love, isn’t it? The joy of greeting and the sorrow of good-bye.”

I am heartbroken for all of you. Ed was an amazing man that took care of others and was so much fun to be around. He was the life of the party at our Christmas parties and was always so happy when I frequented his office for therapy!

I’ve only known Ed for about a year and a half at work, but he was always so friendly and kind. He also saved me about a hundred times when my computer had problems. Such a good sense of humor. May he Rest In Peace!

Maureen, my heart goes out to you during this time. Ed was my dearest friend and one of the kindest souls I’ve ever been privileged to know. I honestly can’t do justice to his memory with words alone but rather I can say with humility that it was an honor to have him in my life and I know all of his friends and family would say the same.

Ram Rao says:

Ed was always smiling. And genial. And we exchanged chatter about some course or other was taking. It is shocking to hear that one so young and full of life has left. I commend the family to peace and strength.
