Condolences

Condolence From: Tom and Ruth Schottman
Condolence: Dear family,

I met Ed Gifford many years ago when I walked in the Plotter Kill and unknowingly trespassed on his property. Instead of being thrown out, I was welcomed by both husband and wife. We compared our very different acting Jerusalem artichokes and I was sent home with a sample of their artichoke and some home made bread.

Next time I visited the Gifford's home was in preparation for assisting a school teacher who was bringing her class there on a field trip. The first thing I noticed was a young bull in the pasture the kids would traverse. Very graciously, Ed promised the bull would be confined elsewhere. We had a great class trip with some botanical observations and a picnic lunch on a beautiful day. Thereafter I added a visit to my Plotter Kill walks.

I also met Ed until quite recently at Union College concerts and I heard him sing in a barbershop group at an ECOS Environmental Clearinghouse gathering. I did not know that people as old as he and I were could still sing as well. It was a pleasure to have known Ed.
