We were friends of Linda and Ed from our school days. Bill graduated with Ed and I graduated with Linda at Clyde. Although we were we didn't live near one another since my graduation we remaind in touch and friends all those years. Ed and Linda will always be remembered by us as very special friends in our lives. To you children: In all our conversations, it was about you each and every one of you all of your accomplishments and then the grandkids. You all were what their lives were about. We are so sorry for you and will keep you in our prayers. They will be missed.

My heart hurts along with you, because I too will miss your Dad! He was such a great man and still asked how everyone else was doing and never shared his pain! His blessings are in Heaven now for all that he gave to our community and the support he gave to Clyde Athletics! What a special person to be admired! The Flier Community salutes you, Ed!
