Oh dear Lord, I'm so shocked and sad. Ed was my friend. Several years ago, we used to correspond on a regular basis. He sent me the most lovely photos. Then I didn't hear from him for a very long time and was so worried. I was overjoyed when he called me about 6 weeks ago. He seemed to be doing well, and told me how his loving companion Woof had become his guide dog. We even talked about the possibility of him traveling through this way next year, and how great it would be to meet face to face for the first time.

Friend of Woof, please pass on to his family that he will be greatly missed, and always fondly remembered.

Ed was a class act, and his posts touched not only my heart, but my soul. He will be greatly missed by us all. Godspeed Ed and God Bless always.;w

Sad to say, our fragile lives are too short. Live every day to it's fullest.

Godspeed Woof. ;w

I had a thought. If anyone would like to send a card to Ed's family, I have his address and would be happy to accept them at my address, then send a packet on to his family. PM me if you are interested.

Sigh...another wonderful soul taken from us for now. I'd not exchanged many posts with Ed, but remember that his posts were one of the reasons I first joined GT. Go in peace Ed, you are very much missed.
Makes you think though...life is so short. I can only hope to have positively affected half as many lives as Ed has by the time my trip on this world has come to an end. My thoughts with his friends, family, and Yabba-Dabba-Doo.

Really a great guy who will be sorely missed.

Condolences..

Sad to hear about the passing of such a nice person. I have never seen WOOF say anything bad in here to anyone, or about anyone. And you could always count on his posts to make you chuckle and smile.
My prayers are with him and with his family and friends;w

We've truly lost one of the giants of GT, not to mention one of our guiding lights. He'll be missed and we'll never be the same.

I See Around Me Tombstones Grey

I see around me tombstones grey
Stretching their shadows far away.
Beneath the turf my footsteps tread
Lie low and lone the silent dead -
Beneath the turf - beneath the mould -
Forever dark, forever cold -
And my eyes cannot hold the tears
That memory hoards from vanished years
For Time and Death and Mortal pain
Give wounds that will not heal again -
Let me remember half the woe
I've seen and heard and felt below,
And Heaven itself - so pure and blest,
Could never give my spirit rest -
Sweet land of light! thy children fair
Know nought akin to our despair -
Nor have they felt, nor can they tell
What tenants haunt each mortal cell,
What gloomy guests we hold within -
Torments and madness, tears and sin!
Well - may they live in ecstasy
Their long eternity of joy;
At least we would not bring them down
With us to weep, with us to groan,
No - Earth would wish no other sphere
To taste her cup of sufferings drear;
She turns from Heaven with a careless eye
And only mourns that we must die!
Ah mother, what shall comfort thee
In all this boundless misery?
To cheer our eager eyes a while
We see thee smile; how fondly smile!
But who reads not through that tender glow
Thy deep, unutterable woe:
Indeed no dazzling land above
Can cheat thee of thy children's love.
We all, in life's departing shine,
Our last dear longings blend with thine;
And struggle still and strive to trace
With clouded gaze, thy darling face.
We would not leave our native home
For any world beyond the Tomb.
No - rather on thy kindly breast
Let us be laid in lasting rest;
Or waken but to share with thee
A mutual immortality -

-E. Bronte



John

Please extend my deepest sympathies. I was another who really enjoyed Woof's posts and pics.

He will be greatly missed and you are all in my thoughts and prayers.

Woof, I know you're reading this thread on a read-only terminal. Thanks for all the great posts and wonderful stories you shared with us.

We'll all see you at the bridge. ;w
