Our friend Ed passed away on January 15, 2013. Ed was a long time chatter and almost everyone in any Senior's Chat Room knew and liked him.
Ed was a lifelong bachelor but he had a special charm with the women and seemed to enjoy his life. I met Ed at the Tarpon Springs Bash, the Orlando Bash and when I visited Moon in England, Moon and I met up with him in Liverpool and spent the afternoon with him. He showed us the nightclub where the Beatles first started performing.
Moon and I considered Ed to be our friend and will miss him very much.
From Jann in New York. I would like to send some
memories of Ed Porter, UK.
From Moon in England. i remember meeting ed the very first time in Liverpool and he took me for a meal in the pub, he was funny and made me laugh.
then when Ralph came over to the UK both Ralph and
myself met ED once again in Liverpool as i think we both met him twice
before Ralph went back to Florida.
ED was the type of person who would help anyone who needed his help in anything at all, he was also a whiz on the computer and built them from scratch.
i always remember when ED brought his best friend down to my home many years ago, Dave, (aka Gonetoseed) who was also like ED and would help anyone, but when the two of them were together, it was like watching the comedians on TV , they were both so funny.
i am glad i had the chances to meet ed many a times
when he use to come to my home to fix my computer.
Ralph, thank you so much for letting me know about Ed. He was on my mind for several weeks. The last I chatted with him he was going for some tests. I often wondered how they turned out..
Ed was so well liked by everyone he came in contact with. His sense of humour and knowledge will be missed terribly. He was a kind gentle man that seemed to enjoy the life he lived . He always had the kindest things to say about everyone he knew.. I didn't know Ed long. Once we were chatting about our love of music. Wouldn't you know, a couple of weeks after that conversation a CD came in the mail. He had made up a CD .the best of music from movies for me. I couldn't believe how thoughtful that was. We had only chatted a short while. This was the kind of man Ed was. Kind to the very soul. Rest in peace my friend. The night time sky shines just a bit brighter with a new star.
From June - Canada. thank you Ralph, for the
I have just read the memorial page for Ed.
