i am so sorry for your loss. I did not know your wife, but you are just a genuine, caring person, i can't expect her to be any different. I was trying to locate you and came upon the obituary. Again, my deepest sympathies.
Ed and family, so sorry to hear of the passing of your wonderful wife. I want to extend my sympathy. You are a special person and I had the good fortune to work out of the same office when you were a supervisor in Green Bay. Your personality brought all disciplines together and you made coming to work enjoyable. You always had something positive and encouraging even for those outside your program. I know you will find comfort through family and friends as you continue on. Tim Rasman
