    Dear Mrs. Prein,

    I am also at Porter Hills but in the E. Fulton Street complex. First, I want to tell you that I have known Ed since I was on the Plainfield Township board in the late 60s and early 70s. I was there when Williams & Works was our Engineering company. I also voted to give our business to Ed and Tom when they started their own company. Ed was a sterling person, without question.

    I missed seeing him over the years that my career took me to a different city until retirement. When I learned that Ed was in one of our Green Houses, I also realized it was too late to connect with him because of his illness. My wife has had Alzheimer’s for 10-11 years and is in our Health Center. The last two years I have not been able to take care of her but can see her practically every day because of my closeness.

    Two or three years ago, I noticed that you and your family had set up a fund to help people get their first ID bracelet. I appreciated that and it took me back to the days when we expanded the water system and put in a sanitary sewer system. I know that Ed’s death is a great loss to you and your family, and I want you to know that I send my prayers and sympathy because I have an idea of what you have gone through.

    I am sorry I could not make it to the memorial service, but I want you to know that I send my prayers to you and your family.

    Dear June,
    My deepest sympathies to you and your family. I learned only recently of Ed’s passing, noting a mass in his memory in the church bulletin. I’m so sorry not to have known sooner.
    I have fond memories of Ed. Such a gentle, caring soul! And I’m sad that such a brilliant mind succumbed to the ravages of dementia. I will be keeping both you, Ed, and your family in my prayers as you grieve his loss. Should you be in Elk Rapids this summer, I would really like to see you and share some time together.
    Blessings,
    Sharon Bacon
