    Fran, Know that you and your family are in our prayers. We never know when we will have to comfort somebody, or be comforted ourselves. May the comfort that was shown to us in our time of grief be shown to you now in yours. If there is anything that you need, don't hesitate to let us know.

    My condonlences to all the family. I worked with Ed at Bellamy School and was so impressed with his work ethic and pride in a job well done! I enjoyed getting to know him and counted him as a good friend. I left Bellamy before he did but went back for his retirement party because I thought so much of him. I will be thinking of you all during this time. Marge Jennings
