    My condolences to Ed’s family. I have known him since 1991 and during that time I never heard him say a cross word to anyone nor say anything bad about any person. I spent many pleasant hours on the golf course with him. Ed, you will be missed. Godspeed.

    Sincere condolences for your loss. Ed and I first met in the early 90s flying radio control airplanes. I enjoyed being around him and we had become fast friends. Our commonality, other than the airplanes and service in the Air Force, was the state of Maine. My best to you all.
