In behalf of my mom Betty
Mom wanted me to share that she loved her sister very much. She is already missing talking to her and hearing her voice. She hates that she can't be there and wants them to know that they are always in her prayers. She loves you all very much. Her loving Sister Betty.

She was very precious to me. If we didn't see each other but once a year its like we just pour our hearts out to each other. I loved her laugh,her energy,her dedication to her family and church. I loved everything about her and all her family. We all come from a great family background and we all are truly blessed. You are truly going to be missed. I loved you dearly. Your niece

I loved Mom Edith with all my heart she showed me how to be a more devoted Christian. When she lost her second son I shared a moment of grief with her in church one Sunday morning where we just hugged and cried my heart felt her pain like it was my own that is my love for her. I will never forget her ever. Rest with the Lord sweet Edith. I will miss you.
