South Laurel: Beloved neighbor and friend will be sorely missed
Our community lost a longtime and beloved member July 15. Retired Army Lt. Col. Edward A. Ford lived in the Bedford subdivision since 1973, after his retirement from the military. He and his wife, Lillian, were original owners when the area was developed. Over the years, Ed has been known for many of his accomplishments including the best vegetable garden in the development. He once caught two of my children climbing over his fence to steal tomatoes. We also had a garden, but somehow "Mr. Ford's" tomatoes were the best! Ed managed to maintain a perfect lawn surrounded by beautifully tended flowers, and had individually wrapped surprises for each neighborhood "beggar" on Halloween.
