Anne and family. My sincere sympathy in your loss of Ed. We spent many hours at the arena and I always appreciated Ed's interest and dedication to the kids he coached and cheered on. I didn't always understand every word he said, but I knew where his heart was. Jim Paterson.

Ed was a proud Scot and at the same time a proud Canadian. He faced life head on with candor and courage and I was always proud to be his cousin. Dee and I extend our deepest sympathy to Anne and all the family. Jim Curwood
