I am so sorry to hear of his passing. I remember when Ed and Sally had their radio show. My Mom would listen all the time as would I. Mom asked them to play several songs, but I remember how tickled she was when she requested "Pistol Packin Mama" and they plated it. They brought happiness to many listeners.

Tawni and I are so sorry to learn about the passing of Ed. Ed was a larger than life community member who helped make living in the Coulee region such a special place. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Sally and the family during this sad time. Congressman Ron Kind

To Sally and Family,
Ray and I were sorry to read the loss of Ed. I know we spent a lot of Saturday's listening to your program and we were lost for a while when it ended. Now we think back when we would see Ed at the mall walking his quick pace and with his headphones on and always wearing a smile and would greet us and wave. We want you to know our thoughts and prayers are with you. Ed, was one of a kind and we know he's looking down on you and hoping all your lights are green. God Bless You All. Take Care Sal.
Ray and Vickie Michalko
