I send my condolences to Ed's family and friends. As Personnel Director at The College at Brockport when Ed was the President of UUP, I held him in highest esteem for his integrity and commitment to the people he represented. We were able to solve many problems as a result of his efforts to ensure just solutions that were satisfactory tool parties involved; employees, management and the union. I have fond memories of working with him and I am sorry to learn of his death.

I only met you briefly on a few occasions, but I am forever grateful for the legacy you leave behind in your son, Nate, and his wonderful family. I can only imagine the great measure of your influence that will live on for generations through them and your many other children and grandchildren. May God bless you and all of them and grant you all a measure of peace as you consider all the good that has been and is certain yet to come. Love, the Jenkins Family.
