I am like everyone, very sad to see the passing of Ed. I did not know him personally, but admired him, and knew him well through words of his many friends. He must have been a great man.... no let me change those words, he was a Great man! Especially since I trust the words of those many friends, and all the lives that were enhanced by his presence. Whether teaching a pinning move, laying a wreath, or becoming Santa Claus. Not many us can be fortunate to leave the world a better place, but you did! God Bless you, and God Bless your family...the world is a better place because of all you have done for our many young wrestlers and the wrestling community, and all the good work your beloved B.A.C.K. did for fallen police.
May you be in a place of tranquility, a place without pain or worry!
