I am deeply saddened to hear of Ed's passing, and i wish to express the sincerest of condolences to family and friends. I would bump into him from time to time around town but, more often than not, at my dad's "second home" -- the Portuguese National Club. He wad alwsys quick to share a smile or a laugh and that is how i shall remember him. May God Bless you; Rest in Peace
