  1. Connie – I am so sorry to hear about Ed! Please know our prayers are with you and your family. Love, Laurie (Girmus) Cleveland

  2. Mrs. Meents, so sorry to read of Ed’s passing. I had heard that you had returned to Lincoln and thought maybe I would see you guys at the engine house in Havelock. I worked with Ed at the gas co from 1963
    til he retired. He was one of the good guys in management because He never forgot his years of union leadership after he went into management.
