Hunter, I am so sorry for the loss of your grandfather. I know you said he was your hunting buddy, and this tree made me think of being out in woods.

We worked with Ed for many years on the Cotton Belt. Ed was a great guy and will be missed by all that knew him.

Sad to hear of Ed’s passing. I worked with Ed for many years at Southern Pacific/Union Pacific. I have fond memories both at work and of our many deer hunting trips in Texas.
