Ed and Gudrun Wolpow, have had many connections with the Ecklers over the years and add to the celebration of their retirement. "To choose what to say about the Ecklers, well, each word weighs. The French speak of le violon d'Ingres - Ingres' violin - the violin a hobby for the famed painter, but a consuming one. Ross and Faith played our (and their) violins - a delight in our avocational worlds that we sometimes envied for our main callings. Many thanks for this joyful flourish at the edge of our "real" lives - reminding, as in a great painting, how important are the edges."
