It was a great sense of loss when we learned of Ed’s passing. May it comfort the family to know so many people care and are thinking of you and your family at this time. What started over 25 years ago as a business relationship grew into a kindred friendship. It was a privilege to have known Ed. I can see Ed & Ouida Jo holding hands in Heaven. Remember that “Those that live in our hearts never die.”
