My bitch from the other thread (very irritated and it takes a lot to get me there...):

Slow Ed and I have watched the start for the last five years together. Not having him with us sucks; not being able to continue a tradition we shared, sucks more.

I can't relate, but do sympathize. Thoughts are with you.


Thanks, Hitchhiker. It is much appreciated. It's been a pretty tough day and I just wanted to do something we enjoyed together.

I can't get Sailing Chix to work either. I had it on my iPhone before dinner and now nothing...

BTW, I have Comcast...

Thank you all for your kind words about Ed. I have such a huge hole in my heart and soul without him. He was a good man - not politically correct as many of you know, but that was Ed. He loved life and lived it to it's fullest even in his final days despite the cancer. We were married last Friday in the chapel at the hospital where he was treated. We were also able to bring him home with the help of hospice.

Some background for those who inquired...Ed was an avid S2 7.9 sailor for many years and traveled to countless regattas with Rebel. He sailed nearly his entire life on a variety of boats and even did two Port Huron to Mackinac Races. His preference was to sail day races. "A proper sailor sleeps in a warm, dry bed that doesn't move," was one of my favorite Ed-isms. He introduced me to the S2 class through Rebel and I am so grateful for that as I have made many wonderful friends. He used to joke that I knew more people than he did despite being part of the class for only a few years. Proof of the closeness of the sailors in the S2 class is in Nick's (Relentless) beautiful piece about Ed which ran on the SA front page. Thank you, Nick.

I am forever grateful for having Ed in my life even if it wasn't for a lifetime. I am truly a better person because of it. I only wish we had more time together. But that wasn't in God's plans. Thank you for keeping all of us in your thoughts and prayers.
