Some pundant said, “You have to draw a line somewhere.” Well, my friend Ed Friedrichs was a “line man.” Someone said food for the hungry and Ed was lined up to pick up and deliver bread. Habitat started up here and Ed said our church needs to support it.
Someone said third-world people need and deserve clean water and Ed lined up support for shallow wells in Africa. Kids needs support and there was Ed supporting his family all the way. We lost Ed Friedrichs last week and we will miss him. I am proud to have known and worked with him. The world needs more folks who draw line likes Ed.
