  14. Dear Ed will be missed. His kindness towards me and his inclusion of me in our group lunches, his infamous block parties, and his manning the grill for Active functions always careful to make mine & Dorothy’s burgers just right, his including me in the group lottery run for tickets we never won anything on. Just being considered a friend was a joy. He was a true gentleman and considerate co-worker and friend. May Ed have eternal peace and know his time on this earth was valuable to many. My deepest condolences to the Schoewe family.
