I worked with Ed on his book, "Not All of Us Were Heroes" and rarely have I ever met a man so honestly humble, so true to his word no matter the circumstance. It is quite like a real hero to deny his heroism and see it as nothing unusual, special or meritorious. As Ed often told me in relating his stunning and unimaginable path through life, it was nothing more than what a fellow should do, "all in a day's work" so to speak. Possessing a sly sense of humor and a truly unique perspective, Ed exemplified what a living treasure is. He would have, and often did, dismissed that. But Ed was and remains a true inspiration, and will remain so. His passing leaves a hole but one that he displayed can be filled by following his example. I send deepest condolences and prayers to Ed's family. My life has certainly benefited by Ed's humble genius, and my unending thanks go out to him.
