>> I am very sorry to hear that Ed has passed away.   I noticed there were no posts from him on Opera-L since around Thanksgiving and I was wondering if he was ok. The last time I saw him he looked unwell. 
>> I knew Ed casually; saw him very many times at the Met. Most often he sat in the balcony. Also, I helped him several years ago arrange "lunches" for members of Ed's Opera group.  We did three different lunches over the course of a few years at various restaurants in Manhattan. Mr. Lamb always attended, as did Kenny (who passed away a few years ago)(his last name escapes me but he worked at the J and R Record Dept for many years). 
>> He also on several occasions gave me tickets to various opera events in NYC.  One time at St. Patrick's where the Archbishop came over to talk with Ed. 
>> I saw him many times times sitting with various singers at the Met, maybe in a box on the Balcony level.  I am sure he told them all about all the good stuff they missed by being so young!
>> I am sorry he is gone.  He was a walking, talking history book of the last 60 years (at least) of opera.
>> ~Mike Hetsko
