JohnNoack Posted October 21, 2015 Report Share Posted October 21, 2015 Ed and MJ were dear personal friends of mine - even after I recruited them both to national positions. They were there for me in good times and bad, and even put me up at their home for a period of time when I was going through a divorce. I never heard MJ tell anyone "no" to a request - and sitting at the Nationals desk with her at many conventions, I heard some off the wall requests. MJ had been Ed's office manager in his aircraft brokerage business and continued to work at CAK after his passing - I'm sure she had as many friends and fans in the world of corporate aircraft as she did in IPMS. I mentioned to someone the other day that she was the kind of person who, if you knocked on their door at 2AM, would bring you in and cook you a meal. Their home was a gathering place for family and friends - many of whom they treated as extended family - and I will miss the many wonderful cookouts on their deck. When Dave called me with the news, I felt like I'd lost a family member. I'm sure Ed's smiling now, but I will miss her (and him) terribly.
