it is with love that i post the story of this greeting card called “Ed”
i met ed late in his life. he was a loner, and had pretty much been that way forever as far as i could tell. we bonded and became close. he was an elderly gentlemen that knew very little love in his life, and yet had quite a poetic heart. he would quote - not read - but recite from heart - shakespeare to me over the phone! he would grumble and cuss and tell you anything you ever wanted to know about anything historical. he was quite a mixture to be sure.
and it was ed that was the person that was there for me at a really really hard moment in my life. i didn't know where to turn, and in desperation, i stood out in the middle of a parking lot and called ed. when i told him what was going on, he got so grouchy for me and starting cussing and carrying on and fussed so much that i started laughing. he was exactly what i needed right then. it was his way of affirming me. and at that moment, he was the only person in the world who i could turn to. i laughed and cried and felt hugged. and so so grateful i had him to turn to.
this greeting card was created because of that moment. and yes, i sent him one for him to know how much he was treasured. and this quote is the quote i wanted to feature now, because ed just passed away. i wanted to honor him, and share a tiny bit of him here. thank you, ed, for being my friend.
