So sorry to hear of Ed's passing. I worked with Freda at Berea National Bank and knew Ed, of course. They were a great couple. He was always so caring and could do anything---fixed anything! I know of their restoring their home in Paint Lick. It was a n honor to know him! Will be praying for the family!
