Don - Thanks for letting us know about Ed's passing. I remember him from when I was an OJT MPI at Ft Hood FO, CID, waiting for approval of my CID application. He was an inspiring influence for me as were others at Ft Hood including you. After I was accepted into CID I transferred to the Ft Sill FO. I remember running into Ed and Frank Chapman (one of my old partners) at the Lawton, OK Police Department. They were picking up a skip runner related to their bail bond business. It was like a small reunion. It is sad to hear about Ed's passing, as it has been to hear of others that we also miss so much. Again, Don, thanks for letting us know about Ed. And, God Bless You.
