I, actually, met met RW Ed lying in a bed in Prince William County hospital. He didn't know me and I didn't know him. I was told in a lodge meeting that he was there and could receive visitors. The next day I went to his room and introduced myself to him. That was the beginning of a wonderful relationship and friendship. For almost five years that I lived in Manassas, VA Ed was a true mentor. I loved being a part of the Tuesday morning coffee club and ritual practice at Hay Market Lodge. Thank you, Ed. You taught me, so much, more than Masonic ritual. You will be love and missed by all who's lives you touched. I know God has a special seat in His kingdom for you. Your work here is done, my brother.
