In Appreciation of MaxaMini

It is very sad for me to write this, but my father Edward, infamously known as MaxaMini has passed away. We are surrounded by friends and family, but deeply saddened by the sudden and unexpected loss of my father. He was an incredible man, a wonderful husband, and an unparalleled father. Lastly, he was a devoted Mini owner. You all were very important to him, and the last years of his life were filled with many great adventures with many of you. He was so proud to be amongst your ranks and he was truly blessed with many fond memories of his time with you all. He will be missed but forever remembered. God Bless you all. As we get more details I will post them here. Thank you all for your friendship and support.

........ I'm in shock here as is my son Nick whom Ed was so good to.

The only thing that comes to my mind at this point is that we need to honor Ed with some type of Mini gathering / run.

Feeling very blue about this ....

I'm so sorry to hear this news. I had such a great visit with Ed recently at Steve's place on the Cape.

When my own father died, a very long time ago, the thing that was most important to me was hearing the large and small ways he connected with and touched others. We'll have a lot of stories for you about our special times with Maxamini.

Quack quack.

I'm speechless. How can someone so young (at heart) just disappear. My next mini mod is a duck in Ed's honor. He truly brought so many smiles to our community.

John, I am glad you saw him recently - and of course he made your day great; that was his gift to all of us.

I was just looking back through my pics of the last time I saw Ed, at the "MINIsOnTop wrap-up" at Steves place two weeks ago ...

I think we are going to need two threads...maybe this one for all people to post to, and another one for info on the upcoming service and things like that.

Also, this thread needs to be somehow linked to the UK and/or OT forums. Ed posted so much over there...I mean who can forget about the story of the MINI meet in, I think it was Ireland? Ed called up 411 and got the number to the pub that the gathering was at. A call was placed to the pub, and minutes later, Ed was buying them all a round.

More thoughts later...

Here's to you, buddy.
