    Sigh...another wonderful soul taken from us for now. I'd not exchanged many posts with Ed, but remember that his posts were one of the reasons I first joined GT. Go in peace Ed, you are very much missed.
    Makes you think though...life is so short. I can only hope to have positively affected half as many lives as Ed has by the time my trip on this world has come to an end. My thoughts with his friends, family, and Yabba-Dabba-Doo.

    Gosh, that's horrible news. What a shock!
    Really a great guy who will be sorely missed.

    Condolences..

    Requiem aeternam dona ei, Domine, et lux perpetua luceat ei.

    Rest in peace, Woof..

    A man who loves Golden Retrievers is a good man indeed. Go with God, Woof.

    Sad to hear about the passing of such a nice person. I have never seen WOOF say anything bad in here to anyone, or about anyone. And you could always count on his posts to make you chuckle and smile.
    My prayers are with him and with his family and friends;w

    We've truly lost one of the giants of GT, not to mention one of our guiding lights. He'll be missed and we'll never be the same.

    I See Around Me Tombstones Grey

    I see around me tombstones grey
    Stretching their shadows far away.
    Beneath the turf my footsteps tread
    Lie low and lone the silent dead -
    Beneath the turf - beneath the mould -
    Forever dark, forever cold -
    And my eyes cannot hold the tears
    That memory hoards from vanished years
    For Time and Death and Mortal pain
    Give wounds that will not heal again -
    Let me remember half the woe
    I've seen and heard and felt below,
    And Heaven itself - so pure and blest,
    Could never give my spirit rest -
    Sweet land of light! thy children fair
    Know nought akin to our despair -
    Nor have they felt, nor can they tell
    What tenants haunt each mortal cell,
    What gloomy guests we hold within -
    Torments and madness, tears and sin!
    Well - may they live in ecstasy
    Their long eternity of joy;
    At least we would not bring them down
    With us to weep, with us to groan,
    No - Earth would wish no other sphere
    To taste her cup of sufferings drear;
    She turns from Heaven with a careless eye
    And only mourns that we must die!
    Ah mother, what shall comfort thee
    In all this boundless misery?
    To cheer our eager eyes a while
    We see thee smile; how fondly smile!
    But who reads not through that tender glow
    Thy deep, unutterable woe:
    Indeed no dazzling land above
    Can cheat thee of thy children's love.
    We all, in life's departing shine,
    Our last dear longings blend with thine;
    And struggle still and strive to trace
    With clouded gaze, thy darling face.
    We would not leave our native home
    For any world beyond the Tomb.
    No - rather on thy kindly breast
    Let us be laid in lasting rest;
    Or waken but to share with thee
    A mutual immortality -

    -E. Bronte

    Please extend my deepest sympathies. I was another who really enjoyed Woof's posts and pics.

    He will be greatly missed and you are all in my thoughts and prayers.

    Woof, I know you're reading this thread on a read-only terminal. Thanks for all the great posts and wonderful stories you shared with us.

    We'll all see you at the bridge. ;w

    All dogs go to heaven.

    Sorry to see him go. He seemed like a nice person.

    Bob, that is a wonderful idea. I'll take care of it.

    If I remember correctly, the original "Woof" was Ed's dear doggie friend that passed away. His current companion and guide was Yabba Dabba Doo. If my memory is serving me correctly then, our dear Ed is indeed in heaven and reunited with his Woof.

    How strange is it that a man can be such a beacon of warmth and good-heartedness, transmitting those gifts thousands of miles in any direction without ever so much as meeting those he touched.

    Godspeed Ed.

    You will be missed, but not forgotten.
