    As one of Ed’s oldest friends, I will miss him very much but take joy in remembering his wit and joy of life.

  13. Bob Mills on February 9, 2011 at 12:38 pm

    Mundo brought joy into the lives of many of us and memories of him still bring a smile. His love of nematodes and explanations of other lesser known things will be passed down for generations. I will certainly miss him even though we rarely saw each other after leaving Intertec. Love you Mundo.

    I am so sorry for you and your families loss Linda. I wish I could have helped more when you would ask questions about my Mom. Even though you knew it was coming – it’s never easy. You have to cry it out or you will never get over it. I didn’t and I still have a very hard time. If you need to talk – I would be more than happy to listen. If you need anything at all please let me know. I would be more than happy to help where I can.

  24. Larry Allen on February 8, 2011 at 12:40 pm

    Deepest sympathies,
    Larry Allen (Linda’s co-worker at Johnson County)
