    My deepest sympathies. I’ve lost a friend, a teacher and mentor. Brandeis University will seem that much empty knowing I’ll never be driving my friend around campus anymore.
    Thank You Ed for being my friend and teacher in life.

    Eddie and Joanie were such good friends to my parents. I have the warmest childhood memories of visits with them, and I always admired the deep affection Eddie held for my dad. He was an usher in my parents’ 1954 wedding and a lifelong devoted friend of our family. The world has lost a great educator, an outspoken champion for children, a loving family man, and a true gentleman. One of my favorite childhood photos is of me in the 60s cuddling with my stuffed collie dog, ‘FoxEd’ named after the ones who gifted it to me. Eddie and Joanie meant so much to my folks. May he find my dad waiting for him in Heaven with open arms. Mia and Nancy, may your fond memories give you strength and peace.
