I was so sorry to hear of Ed’s sudden passing. I enjoyed working with him at SAIS. I also remember many Friday nights with him and the ski club at Seven Springs. How crazy were we to take 250 teenagers there every Friday night to ski?! As you may recall from his stories, we spent a fair amount of time in ski patrol! After he retired, we enjoyed going to Universal Studios with him and Jackson for a day. He was always kind, caring and sociable. Thinking of you and the family during this difficult time. Sorry that I will be out of town for the gathering at North Park.
Rest in peace Sir.
