Thoughts and Memories of Edward Moore
This was my Uncle Ed, who died when I was two years old. I have heard stories over the years of his sense of humor. He was and is well loved and missed.

Ed and I were the best of friends at the time of his accident. He was flying a Cessna 172 and flew into a very severe thunderstorm, which was reported to be about 65,000 feet in height. He is sorely missed and I think of him often.
