Send Condolence

Deepest sympathy to Ed\'s family! I met Ed in my very early years at Bettis, possibly in one of the workshops/seminars. Ed was a very kind and friendly person. I was so happy to have met him, especially knowing he was also an NYU alumni from the same chemistry department. He even knew my advisor! Ed was a blessed man. May he rest in peace in the arms of God. Jane Chan

Deepest condolences to the extended Hillner family on the passing of Ed. We remember Ed and Bea fondly from our time at Beth Israel Center and Magda’s Mom Susan was a fellow Bridge player with them in the South Hills. May his memory be a blessing to the family, friends and to all that knew him. Milt & Magda Orkin Tampa, FL
