    We are so sorry to hear about Ed. He was the first friend we made in Nashville 44 years ago and has been a special person to us through the years. Our thoughts and prayers will be with you. We are sorry to miss the service but we will be attending a funeral in Minnesota that day.

    Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this sad time. We were classmates of Eddie’s at Gallatin High School back in the mid 1950’s. Eddie was a fine person and will missed.

    I can’t tell you how sad it is to know that Ed’s feet no longer touch the earth. He was a wonderful person and a good friend. He was a man of integrity, kindness and wit and I’m grateful to have been graced by his friendship.
