I know that it is hard for you to understand at this time, but time will allow you to heal and as that evolves, the sadness will be somewhat replaced with the many happy memories of Ed that you shared. We go back so long to the early Farms days and I always enjoyed seeing Ed at the Farms. Give yourself time to heal.
