    I am deeply sorry for your great loss. May God grant you and your family the peace and comfort that you need, and that only He can provide during this time and in the days to come.

    Betsy,Katie, and Patrick. I am so sorry to learn about your husband and father. I know you are going to miss him. Every time I was around him,it was a great experience. He added a spark to all our Indian Guide and Indian Princess gatherings.
    I am sorry that I will not get to come to his service, but I have moved back to my hometown Charlotte.
    Stay safe, and I am praying for you.

    I was sorry to see Ed’s obituary in the paper. I joined IBM in June of 1965 in Raleigh and recall putting on a clown act with Ed at the first IBM Christmas party, in downtown Raleigh in December of 1965. I’m pretty sure I also went to a Wake Forest vs NC State football game on the campus of NC State with Ed in the fall of 1965 Many of the employees at that time were coming from Endicott but there were also a number of new college grads joining IBM at that time. Ed and I palled around a bit even though I was an engineer.
    After less than six years with IBM I was in management and Ed was a friendly face in the personnel department that I went to see for advice often. He helped me at times with advice on how I might solve a problem or get through the bureaucracy that IBM had that at times made one’s job harder than it should be.
    Due to the COVID virus I will not be attending, my best wishes to your family.

    Mr. Dunnagan was a kind gentleman with a great sense of humor. I remember him well from Forest Hills and also babysat for Katie and Patrick. My parents, Herbert and Sue Johnson, thought the world of the Dunnagan family. May God comfort your family and bring you peace.

  5. Betty McGuire

    Dear Betsy I am a friend of yours at Magnolia Glen. I am so sorry for your loss. I didn’t know Ed but I remember some lovely conversations you and I had in the dining room. Please extend my sympathy to all of your family.
