I loved this dear woman. She helped me as no one else could in my health and happiness. I did not get to see her often, but just knowing of her presence and godly skills being nearby was enough to uplift. She was a great gifted woman. I will continue to love and cherish her generosity to so very many needy souls. Edna was a true servant of God. I look forward to our sharing in heaven some fine day where we will laugh together.❤💛
