Joyce, Wendy & I are saddened to learn of Edric's passing and the struggles over the past months you both endured. However our thoughts quickly recalled the enjoyable the times we had together, the kindnesses, and generosities you both showed, not only to us, but many others. I remember like it was yesterday the first time I met Edric, it was in Gary Indiana, with Jim Howell & John Baran - for certain a memorable first impression. Please know we are thinking of you - Roger and Wendy

    Thank you both and I liked your "for certain a memorable impression". One of his Artist friends said that he would be missed for his "larger than life personality".
