Ed was a constant and important part of life as he (and Sue) taught Tai Chi so patiently every Tuesday at North Andover's Senior Center over the past decade. He not only taught us the Form, he taught us lessons in Life, philosophy, and grandkids. He gave us strength and guidance, and, I believe, we provided the same for him at times. Tuesdays will never be the same. My sympathy to all of us who lost such an amazing man.
