  1. Gary and I send our deepest condolences to Ed’s family members. I am a cousin.. Although, because of distance, we did not see each other as adults, I enjoyed a brief visit with him a few years ago and intermittent phone calls. I will always have fond memories of playing cowboy and Indians or basket with him on the farm at family gatherings. Family gathers were frequent when we were growing up. Sonny will be missed.
