I am so sorry to hear of the passing of Ed. He was a kind, generous man with a great sense of humor. I will always cherish the memories made when I accompanied Karen and to visit Ed and Mary Jane many years ago. They were so hospitable and made such great efforts to show me around. Ed was a fantastic cook too and I enjoyed his Polish feasts. He also delighted in teasing me about my Southern accent, and the fact that a Texans had too many convenience stores and fences around their yards. I know he will me dearly missed by all his family and friends. My prayers for peace and comfort to Mary Jane, And all the family.
