RIP dear Ed. I just know that Bonnie, Ray and Ella Mae were waiting for you at the pearly gates and you are all catching some of the biggest salmon right now!!! You were always such a good friend to Ray and Ella. We had many talks about Ray when we would visit in the alley when you were on your way home. I will miss those stories!!! Give mom and dad a big hug for me and now, go catch some more fish!!!!!
