Condolences for Ed Smetter
My heart goes out to Ed’s family and friends. I knew Ed almost my entire life and always respected him. The love he and Cathie shared was deep, lifelong and a testament to true commitment. Gone too soon. Loving thoughts are with his family as they mourn the loss of a truly solid and kind man.
Wanted to say how sorry I am to hear of Ed’s passing. I worked with Ed for many years in the gas industry and he was a great guy. I was fortunate to have lunch with him about a month ago as I was passing through Lincoln. Even though he wasn’t feeling the best he still came out for lunch. So glad we got to spend some time together. Rest In Peace buddy, you’ll be missed.
