I was new to Mt. Carmel Lodge in 2006 and was the Junior Deacon. Rt. Wor. Ed was our Lodge Instructor of Work. Each time I either checked or closed the door, or West Gate with my left hand, Ed would let me know, in the most friendly manner, "Paul, this is a right handed Lodge!" Rt. Wor. Ed, not only made me a better Mason, like so many Brothers, before and after me, he taught me how to be the Master of my Lodge. The countless hours he spent with me, I will treasure for the rest of my life. Rt. Wor. Ed always checked up on me and would ask how his girl friend was doing. I would reply that Mari was doing fine. It wasn't until a couple of years ago, Mari had told me that Ed had talked with her to let her know that as Master of the Lodge, I was going to be very busy with the Lodge. If she could, try to be at as many of the events that I had planned. He let her know that would be very supportive for me. Needless to say, Mari thought the world of Ed. Ed, my Brother and my mentor, I will dearly miss you.
