To Gary and Marlene and your entire family: I never had the privilege of meeting Ed, but reading his obituary, I know I would’ve been loved to sit next to him and listen to his lifetime of stories. My dad was a storyteller too, and it was certainly an art among that generation. I do understand the void you are feeling at his passing having journeyed through this experience as well. I lift you up sending prayers of gratitude for a life well-lived, and prayers of comfort and the peace that passes understanding for both of you and all those who loved Ed. Much love. Kathy Coleman
