    My deepest deepest sympathy to all Ed’s family. Ed was such a pleasant and giving gentleman to work with as a Posse member. He and I worked many hrs. together directing traffic and keeping Dodge County safer. He will be so missed by the Sheriff’s dept. A friend you could always count on. He loved working with computers and getting us members all on the same page. May he rest in peace now with our heavenly Father. God bless you all. You are all in my prayers.
