This is Dina posting. We are heartbroken that Ed passed away last night quite suddenly. I am grateful that all his 4 children were able to get there in time to say goodbye. He was the love of my life, for more than half of which, almost 33 years, I was married to him. We will have a memorial service later in the summer.
What I'll remember most about Ed, is what a kind person he was. He attended the Getaway with us a number of times, and he was a friend to everyone. One afternoon at Camp Ramblewood, just after Kendall Morse had started to recover from the loss of his voice, I found Kendall sitting out on the porch with Ed Trickett, playing guitar and swapping songs. Kendall was in heaven. I hadn't seen him look so happy for a long time. I think that afternoon session was an early step toward recovery for Kendall. It's the kind of thing Ed would do.
May he rest in peace.
