Remembering Ed Waggener: What a big loss for Columbia

Von Price writes:
I have written many letters to Ed over the years. And received many compliments from him about how much he appreciated my response to articles. He was always so kind and such a gentleman. I remember going into the Old Circle R and see him sitting at the same table. And always speaking to everyone who came in. May God give the family peace and comfort at this difficult time. Everyone is going to miss him terribly.

Today is a sad day for many people. Sending Sympathy and Love to the entire Family. --Von Price, Englewood, Fla.
