I got some very bad news this morning. Ed's Mom called me.He passed away Aug 23 from a massive heart atack.
Ed was in good spirits up to the end.In his last words he was joking.
I know Ed is now with our Lord. Most likly run'n a trap line.
God bless Ed's famly and all his friends across this great contry who morn his loss.
What a privilege it is, to have all the fond memmories of him. We trapped many states together.Shared some of the best times friends can have on and off the trapline,in the skin'n shead, traveling across this contry and just reflecting on the day,when the work was done.
