As with many many others, I am grateful to Ed for teaching me much of my Virginia ritual. He had to put up with me unlearning Illinois ritual to get the Virginia in. He was a great teacher, man, and Mason. I am grateful to have been able to call him Brother. Ed will be greatly missed. I'm am so sorry not to be able to be there to honor him and say goodby for now Brother. My sincere condolences to Carol and the rest of his family on their loss.
