Dear Becky,
I just now learned of Ed's passing. I am so sorry to hear the news. Ed was by far the greatest boss and leader ever. He made a great contribution to my professional career and taught me so much. Most of all, he was a great teacher and a true friend. Please accept my most heartfelt sympathy. Sadly, Ron
