Ed was a great friend, we worked together for years. I enjoyed helping him outside the “shop,” on various projects . One summer we even had Dorie help us, one week end we did two roof jobs up North. I’ll miss him, we had many “good-times” together. But we will remember, he’s in a better place.

Darcy – I know you will miss your dad enormously. It was obvious to all of us who worked with you how much you love your parents. Thinking of you as you go through this difficult time.
