A couple of Ed thoughts
By Billy Joe Fudge
After stumbling upon a new word I would often share it with Ed, only to find that he already had an intimate relationship with it. He had a wordagrafic memory.
I shall never cease to smile when remembering the pleasure and excitement Ed would experience each time he would share with me that a particular tidbit of information should be nominated for Coy Downey's, "World Book of Guinness's"!
One particular special moment for me occurred when I stopped by to visit. I knocked on the heavy wood door and Linda invited me in. She sat down in Ed's office chair and I moved about 200 pounds of papers and books out of the other chair prior to sitting down. During that moving process, I asked if Ed was at home and Linda said he's taking a nap. I told her it was no problem and that I could come back later because I only wanted to tell him a story. From the other room Ed exclaimed, "I'll be right there!"
