Ed, fond memories of our many conversations, whether at Joanne’s, the DZ, or enjoying Margaritas at my house. You were a wonderful friend. Blue skies!

Your wonderful and endearing, eternal smile will last longer than life itself. Cherished memories. Though you shall not pass this way again. Honor for what you have given me.

Fly free, Ed. Blue Skies! 💙

Special Ed , you were my very first skydiving friend, and one of the kindest men I ever met. You had an unrivaled sense of humor and always made me feel like I was an important person. Although we shared a love of the sky, I will always remember you for how grounded you were . Fly free, my friend- until we meet again ❤️

So sorry to hear this. I worked with Ed at Arkwright. We did a lot of jogging together at lunchtime and many hikes up Monadock. A truly special guy. I admired him very much.
