    One by one
    Only the Good die young
    They’re only flying too close to the sun
    And life goes on –
    Without you…

    Lyrics and Music by Brian May, recorded by Queen.

    Friendship, over all…thoughts and memories of Ed Flitton (1942 – 2010)

    I am trying to remember when I first met seems like he has been a part of my life for so long. I hated to see the end of any meeting with Ed and eagerly looked forward to the next.

    Many others have written on Ed’s qualities and character (on the College of Law Practice Management’s blog). I echo all those thoughts and would add one further: over everything, Ed was a teacher. He was constantly giving of himself and showing us all how we could reach higher. And Better. And Deeper. I wanted to say thank you – somehow – for all those lessons. I know that Ed would not have wanted any payback for those lessons other than to say to go out and pay it forward. So the final lesson that you left us Ed, would be, I believe, to go forward and teach others as you have done.

    Your legacy is to have planted these ideas in everyone who came into contact with you. I count myself among the fortunate ones who had been able to have spent some great times with you. Thank you for everything Ed. I hope to put those lessons to good use in the years to come and seek to follow your example. I will greatly miss our talks and your friendship.
