Last night my wife and I made Edward's Lasagna and served it to some new friends. It is named after him now because after much pestering his wife finally agreed to let us make one and bring it up for the family to eat on over the weekend.

I will never forget that day as long as I live. It makes me smile every time I think about it. We miss you Edward, every single day.

The Lasagna was good. The look on his face, and the question, they are priceless and among my most prized things.

Very Sad news. RIP Ed.

Through this site, Edward has probably touched more AR enthusiast than all other forms of media combined. Thank you sir for this monumental contribution. May the caretakers of this site oversee it with your spirit in mind.

Ed, I'm sorry for your loss.  

We met briefly when I was at 84, and had the pleasure of working with your wife and family when you built your house in Mendon (twice).  Your family is a class act and I can't imagine what you're going through.

I've been away from arfcom for too long, I think.
Link Posted: 7/7/2020 11:33:15 PM EST
Sad news, Ed will be missed.
Link Posted: 7/12/2020 5:06:12 PM EST
Thinking of you today Edward, as some members here have asked about getting the recipe for "Edward's Lasagna" in order to share it with their families.

I wonder if you had any inkling how many lives you have touched and what an impact AR15.com would have when you began that mailing list over 20 years ago... I have made so many friends IRL as they say from here that I have trouble counting them all.

I know you are at peace now but we miss you. I know you are looking down on us as I have seen the signs and heard the stories! Perhaps from there you can indeed see the positive impact you had, and that Juan and the rest of the clan continue to have, on our community.

K and I will continue to look after S, and we will all see you again soon enough.

“So, never give up. Continue to fight. You’ll either find a win here and there, or you’ll die fighting. I can accept either of those out comes”

His quote inspires me often.

Godspeed sir.

Godspeed, sir. Thank you for this community and for making us all a little better because of it.

Just reading through the replies here and remembering Ed.

R.I.P. Ed. You are missed by many and will always be remembered with a fondness you may never have imagined.

Never imagined, and I bet he would be slightly embarrassed @M4.

That reminds me Edward. I have been chatting with S the last few days, and am reminded how much she and K are alike, and how ridicuously lucky we both are to have them in our lives. K has instructions to send me your way when the time comes with a roll of Spree, just in case they don't stock it in Heaven.

This is a terrible, terrible loss to our community.

You will be sorely missed.

I'm not on ARFCOM a lot these days because of various family, education and work events. I now just saw what happened to Edward. I'm so sorry for the family's loss. His idea of this forum brought so many like minded people together. He will be missed. God bless you.

I shared again the recipe for Edward's Lasagna over the weekend with a few more members.

ARF Brothers and Sisters are sharing a meal with their kids, brothers, sisters, and parents, and talking about this community and what it means to them.

It puts a smile on my face when I close my eyes and picture it.

Amen
As I watch everything unfold I am reminded how lessened we all are without Edward. As a community, as a family, as a nation. I find myself almost daily wishing that I had his strength, the strength to think of everyone else before himself, the strength to provide for and look after others, his level of understanding and ability to acknowledge and persevere.
