Ed was a great guy. He and I bonded while touring the Gettysburg Battlefield. It was his birthday, and I was supposed to take him to the new visitors center, while Barbara, his wife, Ruth, his mother-in-law, and my mom, Deloris Belling, cousin to Ruth, all went antiquing. Once we were there, we both decided we'd much rather tour the actual battlefield then the visitor's center. We had a great time. I kept stopping and getting out and looking at everything. We climbed several of the overlook platforms, which Ed had never gone up in before. We were partially through the park, and we were late for his birthday dinner, and I told Ed, we needed to head back, and he told me, "they'll hold dinner, let's keep going." We were a little over an hour late for his birthday dinner, which they did hold until we got there. I had always hoped to visit again, and go back and finish touring the battlefield with Ed. Unfortunately, that never happened. Ed was a really nice guy. I was very sorry to hear of his passing.

Barb and family: i remember meeting Ed when we brought our group from Change over to the farm for a barbeque. What a nice gentleman he was and the loving care that you and your family gave him was so heartwarming. Sending love and condolences.
