To Jean and your family, My deepest sympathies on the passing of Ed. Ed was considered as a friend and work colleague and we had continued correspondence and freindship via e-mails over the years since our retirement.

So sorry to get this news. We should have kept in touch with family. Ed had a wonderful life & family, life is too short for the best God gives us. Love, Mary & Pat
I am so sorry for your loss. May the passing of time heal you pain and bring forth the wonderful memories I know you all shared.
Dear Jean and Family, We learned from Dick Aust of Ed's passing and couldn't have been more shocked. Ed was the best General Motor's manager I had the privilege of working for. I found Ed to be fair, consistent, knowledgable and just plain fun to work for. RoseAnn and I thoroughly enjoyed our visit with you and Ed at your summer place, in Tucson, many years ago. Love, Gary and RoseAnn
