Wow, what a sad day when I heard my favorite bingo player was no longer with us. I looked forward to seeing Ed every Monday night at St. Christopher. I'll have to admit, I looked forward to those Fanny Mae chocolate bars as well. I would always joke with Ed and tell him "Ed, oh how you know the way to a woman's heart." I'm going to miss that smile. Bingo on Monday night's sure won't be the same. Fly high Ed and may u rest in peace. Love,
Wendy (your computer lady)
