Guestbook

I worked at Yellow Freight from 1979 to 1999 & got to know Ed who was a very nice man who you always enjoyed talking to. Ed also attended our Retiree's Breakfasts where he was able to be around the other retirees he had worked with & enjoyed their friendship. We will dearly miss him.

Ed was one of the nicest people I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. I worked at Yellow Freight with him for about 15 years. I will miss him.
Im sorry for your loss.
