Mrs. Judy and family,
I was so heartbroken to learn of Edward's passing. He was one of my favorite farmers when I worked at the Geneva County FSA. Edward was a good man and a good friend. My heart and prayers go out to you.

I am proud to know another Edward Earl Strickland is with our Lord Jesus in Heaven.
As a Real estate Broker you would think I would live in Floria as he did.
No should Luck, It's snowing here in St. Paul Minnesota on April 6.
