  2. Randall Pratt Says:

    I first met Ed 30 years ago when I was fresh out of law school. I remember well being very impressed with this innovator and entrepreneur, and I have never stopped being impressed by Ed. He is a man that I greatly admire, as his life is a rare blend of scientist, inventor, businessman, persistent worker, healer, traveler, and compassionate friend. I would hope that at the end of my life I have brought blessing and help to even half of the people that Ed has blessed and helped (and brought much needed healing) — most of whom he has never met. His legacy is deep and enduring, as the products he has invented will continue to be therapies of choice to those who are injured and hurting. I am honored to have known Ed my client and friend.
