R.I.P. E.E. 'Bo' Edwards, Past NACDL President

Nashville criminal defense attorney E.E. "Bo Edwards" passed away yesterday at age 61. Bo was the immediate past President of the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers (NACDL)and a very kind man. He will be missed.

Bo worked tirelessly for reform of our civil asset forfeiture laws. I had the privilege of working with him when I served as Secretary and Treasurer of NACDL.

He spent the last few years on dialysis, hoping for a kidney transplant. Yet he traveled to every NACDL board meeting and gave the organization every bit of his attention.

R.I.P. Bo, and know that there are thousands of defense lawyers thinking of you tonight.

Visitation will be held 4 to 7 p.m. tomorrow in Marshall-Donnelly-Combs Funeral Home, 201 25th Ave. N. Graveside services will be in Mt. Olivet Cemetery at 1 p.m. in McKenzie.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Vanderbilt University Law School, 131 21st Ave. S., Nashville, 37203, or the American Kidney Fund, 6110 Executive Blvd., Suite 1010, Rockville, Md. 20852.
