Brenda, so sorry to hear of your loss. I know the entire family will miss him greatly.. Prayers are with you.
Ed will be greatly missed! We became quick friends. He was always excited to hear about my cow/calf herd, see pictures of my kiddos, and was always willing to give me a vote of confidence. I will continue to think of him as a surrogate grandpa. Rest in peace my friend.
