Ed Jordan's Passing...

This morning I just revisited your Mel Lyman / Avatar site because I was looking for Bud Burns, whom I never got to know well enough. And there I found instead an obituary for Ed Jordan. This saddens me. I loved Ed "Beardsley" Jordan. Truly. He was a sweet guy back then in that sweet age. I visited him up in Newburyport about two years after the Avatar imploded, and he was still Ed ... making a sweet home sweeter by his presence. I miss Ed. Someday I'll rejoin him, as will we all.
