The evening of Ed's memorial service and life celebration was both somber and joyous. Ed inspired so many over the many years. People stood up and told stories. It was wonderful. Bryan, his Mom and Sister were there to celebrate Ed's life with all of us.

We were not thrilled when we were offered a mineral for sale, during the memorial service. It seemed very disrespectful and we had told them that we were not interested just the day before. Anyhow, we did not let it ruin our celebration of Ed Swoboda's wonderful life.
