It has been 54 years ago since my brother was shot. Like someone said, he hasn't been forgotten as long as people think of him. I was only 7 when this happened and I am now 62. Someone explain to me why the shooter, "Mr." Dixon is alive and well and able to walk the streets while my brother can not. What a world.

Time may have passed but you are not forgotten. I believe as long as someone remembers you or speaks your name, you are still with us.
Thank you for your heroism.
GOD Bless

Ed Ford and I were good frends and both where on GPD at the time that he was killed in the line of duty. I think of him often.

To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 40th anniversary of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service. My cherished son Larry Lasater was a fellow police officer who was murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Time never diminishes respect. Your memory will always be honored and revered. Rest In Peace

I look at this web site almost everyday. I saw where NC has lost 3 officers in the line of duty on this date. While looking at the memorials, I came across Officer Ford's entry. I want to thank him for his sacrifice. My thoughts and prayers are with the family. A current GPD Officer. RIP

Iwas just a small boy when Edward died but Ihave always thought of him. I would love to meet "Mr." Dixon and ask him why he shot and killed my brother. On behalf of the entire Ford family, let it be known we have not forgotten our dear family member.

Edward was a brother that I never knew. I would that I had the chance. I was six years old when he left for the US Marine Corp. I treasure the few memories I have of him.

As a former GPD officer I heard of the tragedy that took Officer Ford's life. I saw your memorial today on the ODMP home page and thought back to the friends I have lost. God bless you and your family for the sacrifices you made.
