I am reflecting on my life as I grow older these days. Ed and I were on the dive team for the Marinette County Sheriff Department. He also dove on the "Mystery Ship" for those of you old enough to remember.
I thought I was a well trained diver but when I met Ed, I was just a rookie. He taught me so much that even the PADI instructors don't know.
I miss his wisdom. I miss his camaraderie, I miss his him.
