To Ed's family: my parents lived on Oak Hill Circle, building their home in 1969. I have such fond memories of Ed as he always had a smile and a good chat with my dad or with me. After my parents were both long gone, I took a job as the receptionist at the Ashland Times-Gazette and whenever Ed came in to pay a bill he would come and have a visit with me.
I am so sorry for your loss. Please know he will stay in my heart and I am glad I got to know him as a good guy.
Nancy Wasen, daughter of Marge and Bob Wasen
