I grew up with the Lamar family as well as going through school with Ed. We had a great time and many good memories. His smiling face and polite personality will be missed. God Bless you Ed.

I reestablished contact with Edward a couple of years ago, but hadn't talked with him in a while. We hung out a lot @ NHS & we shared many good memories. I am very sad!!

I knew Ed and his family most of my life.  I first met Ed in school, but he and his brother joined the Boy Scout Troop that my dad had organized.  He and I kept in touch from time to time after high school when he went off to college and I got drafted and joined the Navy (do any of you know that it was Rick Vogels' dad who reached into that big glass jar and selected draft numbers?).  Following my tour, I entered college at the University of Alaska, Fairbanks.  By an incredible stroke of coincidence, I worked one summer on an island north of Kodiak with the guy who roomed with Ed at Tuskegee.  It was clear that fate would keep Ed and I in touch no matter the miles that separated us.

It wasn't until I moved to Florida two years ago that Ed and I lived close enough that we kept in regular touch.  He spent a week with my wife and I last year and we were able to catch up on everything that had happened in the previous four decades.  Wow, how time flies.

I miss Eds' easy laughter to my lame one-liners and his warm personality.  What a great friend.
