    Ed and I worked together and then retired to The Villages together. He was a dear friend and Dick and I will miss him, but I know he is in a better place.

    Thoughts and prayers going out to the family. Ed was a wonderful person, and always upbeat/positive. He was one of a kind, and I am very fortunate to have had him as a friend! Never a dull moment with him. He will be missed by so many people, and impacted so many lives. ❤️
