When I first read that Edward was a preacher by trade, I was pretty surprised. I never thought of him as a people person. He was not shy, though, and I often talked to him in business typing. He was pretty straightforward. .

"Buddy" as most of us knew him lived up the street from me and we often walked home from school together.  He used to stop in at Pop Werners corner store across from the Acme and pay for a few things, but walk out with many.  Sooooooo, it really supprised me when he bcame a Priest!  But it just shows that anyone can change their lives around.  It was great knowing him and I am sorry he is gone.
