I remember Edith as a kind and gentle soul (and she made the best cakes!)
The world is a little darker without her.

When I was little we use to pick cherries of the cherry tree in the front the yard at Aunt Edith's. She also made the best strawberry cake ever. She's the best aunt in the whole world. God has truly gained a very precious Angel who will forever be in our hearts. I love you Aunt Edith.
