Ed wrote “Legacy Letters-Gifts of Love and Wisdom from Dad” and published as his desire to leave his children wisdom for life and the ongoing sense of his deep love for them in a tangible way.
If you ask folks who know him, they will tell you Ed is kind, compassionate, understanding, non-judgmental, while being solution focused looking for practical answers.
Ed has a passion for relationships stemming from his own experience in marriage. Ed and his wife Betsy came very close to divorce after 10 years of marriage. At that point, only staying together for their children, they began Christian counseling. Ed likes to say when their marriage started getting better, he knew ANYBODY’s marriage could get better. So he and his family moved to Wheaton, IL to get his master’s degree in Clinical Psychology with an Emphasis in Marriage and Family Therapy. Ed has a deep personal experience with trauma having lost their first son at age four and after the tragic death of their daughter at age 25. There is no darkness deeper than God’s love especially at times of grief.
