I am sorry to hear about Ed. My condolences to Jim and Lorrain and Family.
Ed was my Sabbath School Teacher at Kendalwood in the 60s, along with my Mom.
Ed and Kay were part of my life growing up there.
My husband John and I, and my sister Debbie, enjoyed a visit with Ed about a year ago. He was a man of faith and we will miss him.

We were so shocked to hear of Ed’s passing. He was a longtime friend of my father (Harold Spratt) who also recently passed. They are together once again. Our sincere condolences to his family.

Ed was one of the best. A true good example to all those who came after.
