I will always remember Ed’s love of trains. He knew so much and the only person I ever met who not only knew what the Melrose Grade was and was impressed I knew too and been there. His sense of joy and humor and he lived the life he loved appreciating all around him.

As children we lived in the Glenside Housing Project in Reading,PA. We didn’t live far from the railroad tracks. Maybe that is why Ed became so fascinated with trains. He made friends with the caboose man on one of the trains. He would run down to the tracks to look at the train and say hello to the caboose man whenever it stopped near our house. He carried that love of trains throughout his life.His joy & enthusiasm for life made him the special person he was to family & friends.-Love Louise(sister)
