    So sorry to hear of Ed’s passing. He was one of the real good guys. He was one of the first guys I met at 32AOTA when I started with AT&T in New York City in 1963. Whenever our paths crossed over the years we always reminisced about that meeting. Rest in peace my friend!

    Dear Donna and Family,

    I was very sorry to learn of Ed’s passing.

    Ed and I had some fun times and actually some difficult ones when we worked as close associates at the Association of Corporate Travel Executives. The difficult times were our working hard to get the organization from $400,000 in debt into the black over a five year period. But we were successful!

    Since then we had frequent long phone calls that were always enjoyable as Ed was an upbeat person and we always had a good laugh together.

    I am one who will really miss him. Sharon and I offer you our thoughts and prayers.
