    I just found out today that my step father Ed has passed away. I am heartbroken. We had visited him a few times in Okemos, Mi, and a couple times at the Veterens home. Our visits will always be treasured moments for me. I love you Ed! You are the only father I ever knew and I thank you for loving me! I will miss you!
