    Dear Lyn and Schumann family, my son, Ed, sent me the notice of Ed’s death on Sunday.  Life passes us by so quickly.  Our family share so many great memories of Ed, Sunnyside Junior Golf, especially memorable are the Junior Golf Banquets! Reading Ed’s obituary I see he was born in 1938, just 6 weeks before Marrin.  I’m sure they have had a heavenly high five already! Take care Lyn, stay well and recoup your energy.
