We send our deepest sympathy to Connie and her family on the loss of this great man. Karen and I owe the value of Connie's friendship and of the many friendships that we have here in West Monroe area to Ed and Connie. We have already missed Ed's talents on the golf course due to his illness and but we know he is now teaching others his many gifts that he has learned during his stay with us on earth. We will miss you Ed and we are better for knowing you.
