Ed was always such a friendly and helpful guy. He was one of the first people I met at Southside Gardens. he was always pleasant and cheerful. I remember how proud he was of his little green space of flowers and tomatoes that his daughters planted and kept up for him. My condolences to the family, he was a good guy.
