Ed Parten... Friend And Mentor

On Easter Day, my friend and mentor Ed Parten had the privilege to go meet his Maker and receive a new body and a new life.

Although it is sad, it is a joyful moment knowing that he will be in Heaven and will probably be in charge of the water, which he loved and took such good care of here on earth.

Some people knew him as a bass fisherman. But his passion was to keep the water…that precious commodity, clean for all. And yes, the fish were just the beneficiary and gave him pleasure in catching them.

And in closing and saying goodbye to my friend, Ed, save me a cup of water. I’ll be there and I’ll help.
