I'm heartbroken to hear that Ed passed away unexpectedly yesterday. He was one of the kindest, gentlest, most generous, and most unpretentious people that I have had the pleasure of knowing in the pipe community. As both a pipe maker and a pipe repairman and he was always willing to share his knowledge with anyone that was interested. I regret that I never had the chance to meet him in person, but we talked frequently both on Facebook and online forums and I was proud to call him a friend. I will miss him greatly.

To honor his memory, I'm having a bowl of "Ed's Leftovers" (a catchall mix of jar scrapings that Ed put together for the DGCF box pass) in an Ed James modded cob. The custom cob tamper that Ed made for me is alongside. Ed and I had talked about giving this pipe the Shuckin' Awe treatment, but now... I just don't know.



Rest in peace, my friend, and I hope that heaven smells exactly like Carter Hall.

Carter Hall in a Medico VFQ I got from Ed.  I also used the red, white, and blue tamper Ed had made and included as a gift in one of my pipe orders.

RLP-6 in a billiard.  A tobacco I know Ed did not smoke. Will buy a pouch of Carter Hall in his memory.

Haunted Bookshop in a Mastercraft Legion of Honor pipe with coffee, sitting here thinking about the veterans that gave it there all on June 6th 1944.
