I had the privilege of knowing Edna when I worked at Saint Joseph Hospital may she Rest In Peace.

Dear Bernie and the Ford family members, we are deeply saddened by your loss. Bernie, we will not make it to Chicago for Edna's service, but Edna and you will be in our prayers on Tuesday. We have wonderful memories of Edna, going all the way back to our wedding in 1965 and before. We will miss our visits together. Thanks to you and Edna, we shared in wonderful memories of Italy. Edna loved the friends you both made there. Arrivederci, cara Edna. You were a dear friend.
