  5. These are nice words. I knew Ed as a friend and co worker. He made my world a better place. I believe you would be hard pressed to find an enemy of Ed Mangdon. It was an absolute privilege to know Ed.

  10. To Sir Ed,

    Have met Ed in the Philippines and we’re good friends for sixteen years. He treat me like his own son. I will never forget him. And also I will never forget his son Edward Mangan Jr. ( a police new york) when I guide him here at TAAL VOLCANO,PAGSANJAN FALLS,FORT SANTIAGO & ETC.. When I’ve worked in Saudi Arabia, he was the one who help my daughter Crystal for her needs and for her studies. He also treat my daughter as his own daughter. Im very thankful that I met him for so long. When he left the philipines because of his condition, a few days ago we heard the news and we’re shocked for what happened that Ed passed away..We felt sad at that time.

    Thank you for being a good friend to me and to my family. Thank you for the kindness that you’ve given to us. I know that GOD will be the one who will be taking care of you now. We will MISS YOU & WE LOVE YOU…

    MAY REST IN PEACE….
