  1. Brian, Liz, Jocelyn Neil and Ellis :

    Well, Elfrieda, Brad, Dave and Kalyssa, we will certainly miss all the over-the-fence chats with Ed. That clematis that climbs up the post in the back yard will be a good reminder that he is never very far away, though. You are all in our hearts and thoughts these days.

    Elfreda and family
    Linda and I were surprized and sorry to hear about Ed. While I have many fond memories of Ed through work and curling, it was great to work with him on the Pensioner’s Association where he became a cornerstone in terms of history and process. He had many many friends at the Gas Company and will sadly missed.
    Our Condolences.
