He spent many an afternoon swimming and fishing . Several days a week dove and quail hunting on Bolivar Peninsula were not out of the ordinary for him. Sailing with his fraternity brothers was the usual Sunday afternoon outing. Ed was fond of a lady friend that came from Wortham,Texas. She always welcomed his company. He spoke of visiting Wanda on his rail trips to call on his mom in Dallas. His mother always enjoyed his visits. He wrote Wanda letters, described his activities and seemed to long for the day they could rendezxous. Their lives were busy and full with activity which made it almost impossible. Wanda ended up saving Ed's letters. These are the letters he wrote to her.
