Our sympathy to each of you in the passing of Bro. Ed. He proved me with Elder Bro. Leo Moser in 1981 and now they are both gone. We had the privilege of hosting Bro. Ed & Sis. Joan in our home for a weekend in Ft. Scott after I was married. I always appreciated his gentle, loving spirit and steadfastness. Thankful he could attain his victory in Jesus and for his efforts in preserving the faith for the next generations.
