    Ms Bailey and family,
    I went to work for FmHA in 1967 and Ed was one of the first people I met after reporting to work in Cookeville. I was still working when Ed retired. I always appreciated his encouragement and professionalism throughout the time we worked together. He was a great friend to me throughout my career. I want to express my utmost sympathy to you and your family during this sad time.
