    “Stingray rides at 4:00 AM, The ocean, Spring of 76, Getting drunk, Laughs, So many memories, and if I can’t remember all the memories, I will remember the feeling, one feeling of happiness the whole time. Good luck, play out your dreams. I’ll remember you always, Love, Ed – Your Smile.” Written by Ed at 1:40 AM on 5/15/76 on the inside cover of “The Prophet” by Kahlil Gibran.nI’ll love and remember Ed always.

    It was an honor attending the Phillies game with you this past July. I cannot believe your gone I keep expecting to get a text with the score of the Phillies game, you going off on one of your rants about hp or the government or just trying to make a deal. I am glad that I was able to see you one last time before you left us. I will never forget you Ed. May God rest your soul my friend.

    This is a dedication to a true friend. You are now gone you have left a huge void in our lives on August 4th 2010.Life may have thrown you a curveball but you were always there no matter how tough of a time you were going through to lend a helping hand or moral support. Your stories of conspiracies, Glenn Beck, The Big Talker, space travel, Sister Sylvia, dolphins and your times in FL and AZ would always bring a smile to our faces. We only knew you a short time during your existence here on earth but in that time you left all of us with enough memories to last a lifetime and beyond. You and your stories touched so many lives you were a true legend and friend in your own way.rn

    It was not their irritating assumption of equality that annoyed Nicholai so much as their cultural confusions. The Americans seemed to confuse standard of living with quality of life, equal opportunity with institutionalized mediocrity, bravery with courage, machismo with manhood, liberty with freedom, wordiness with articulation, fun with pleasure – in short, all of the misconceptions common to those who assume that justice implies equality for all, rather than equality for equals.rnThis was one of Ed’s favorite quotes rnrnrn
