Oh Ro, We were so very saddened about the news of Ed. After living in the same building for 28 years now, it seems like yesterday when I met you at the pool. With Ed's happy eyes and your warm smile we felt at home immediately. How we will miss the two of you walking the neighborhood and always on the go. To you and your family, our sympathy and much hope for your piece of mind, you were a wonderful wife.
