    I had the pleasure of getting to know Ed while working at Century Link Field. He and my mom we’re on the same team. He was such a sweet and gentle spirit and every single time I had the pleasure of being in his presence he greeted me with his big smile! Ed was such a great friend to my mom and I. I will truly miss seeing Ed. It won’t be the same.. May he rest in heavenly peace. CeCe and family, you have my deepest and sincerest condolences! May God continue to be your strength in this difficult time! Blessings.

    Our condolence to Cec and Family. I knew Ed through Cec. Ed and Cec were going on vacation and Ed asked Bob and I if we would take care of his Fuchsias for him. He loved his Fuchsias. Ed you did not get a chance to plant them this year so I am bringing one to the house for you. Help me out Ed you have to send vibes to Cec to water/ fertilize Ed kept them in complete beauty.
