We would like to extend our sincere sympathy to you upon Ed’s passing. We got to know you folks well when planning the Australia Scouting trip for our sons.
We always enjoyed Ed’s great sense of humor and good nature. We saw Rhonda before we left for Florida and she told me Ed was not well.
Our sincere sympathy to you,
Joan & Bill
