James and John,

Edith was an angel. I loved her from the first moment I met her when we were introduced as roommates at Ole Miss. She loved people, animals, and gave the world a positive outlook on every situation. She will be missed sorely by all of those who loved hear dearly. My thoughts and prayers to all of you. Hold on to those special memories. She lived for her family. She wants you to be happy. All my love, her college roommate, Jill (Watson) Williams
