Edd was my first boss and forever my most favorite. He become like a second dad as my family was 1200 miles away. He was such a wonderful man and great person to work for. If it wasn't for Edd I would not have the career I do today. He gave me a chance and never doubted me. I am so sorry for your loss and wish you much strength and comfort in the days ahead.
