Durwood and Bobby Joe,
I was saddened to learn of Edwin's passing. In 1953 Edwin and I went together to Jackson to enlist in the Navy. Although we were called at different times to report for active duty, two years later we were both assigned to sea duty. While in Kobe, Japan our ships were in the same port and we went on liberty together and had a meal at a restaurant in Kobe.
Rest in peace, Edwin.
