I met Ed at Heritage Ford . when i came from New Jersey and started to work at Heritage. Ed and  I became very good friends and he treated me like a brother. When i retired i moved to Tennessee we still stayed friends. I would call him on the phone at least once or twice a month. We would aways kid that i was two weeks older then him. I will miss talking to him..Rest in peace.
