Dear Dani and family,
We are so sorry for your loss. Ed was a mentor to Royce. Royce looked up to him. I (Michelle) will miss his stopping by with beautiful wildlife pictures that he'd taken that day. He got the lottery ticket to heaven, the one we've all been waiting for. Thanks Ed for being our friend and never forgetting about us! All our love and prayers to you and your family. Love Royce and Michelle Blum
P.S. Dani if your down our way please stop by.

Dani and family,
I am deeply saddened by this news. Ed was a wonderful man, one that would always make me laugh. I enjoyed working with him at Dana. We always had talks about the dogs! They sure were his pride and joy! Find strength in each other and in your friends. They will help you through this. Praying for all of you.
