Polly, Sorry for the lateness of this condolence but I was just doing some research on meaningful people in my life after talking to a woman in church today who also knew Ed. Your husband was a father figure in my life after my father died of cancer when I was 16 years old. I have fond memories of Ed taking me under his wing and doing fun things like hunting for arrow heads. I lost track of your family after I graduated and served in the Navy as a Hospital Corpsman during Vietnam. May God Bless you in your loss! Ed was one of the best men I ever had the priviledge to know!

William Sells
