    I am so sorry to read of Ed's death. Levern remembered Ed from the time they were in the service and I certainly remember you from those same times, when we saw many movies together. You must have a fine family to be with you at this time. We have two sons and wives, and two grandsons & one granddaughter. Levern is not well and I also have some health problems. Love, Marilyn
