    Ed and Ann Marie were wonderful friends to my family. I always think of Ed as a generous man who would go the extra mile. He arrived at our house the morning of my father’s unexpected death. He’d been there to dinner the night before. He was leaving for France that evening and he wanted my brother’s address so that he could stop in Paris to tell him his father died. My brother and his wife were out on the town the way students are. Ed sat on the door step until they came home during the small hours of the morning. What kindness. I loved Ann Marie and would stop by for coffee. When I return to the region, I spokee to her on the phone but she said they were too sick for a visit. I will always cherish the friendships with Ed and his beloved AM
