I don't remember a time when the Edwards weren't part of our lives. We lived right down the road and our paths crossed often. I feel like you guys are cousins. I am so very sorry for your loss we can look forward to a time when the last enemy death is done away with and as Isaiah promised "no resident will say I am sick" and death and sickness will be done away with. My prayers are with you.

Mike went to high school with us and he was so very loved AND funny. I remember going to Donnie and Deana’s boat with mike. We took lots of pictures, however I lost them in hurricane Harvey. He was a funny guy and I loved him dearly
