Ruby, you have my sincerest regrets in the death of your mom, Edie. I met your mom many many years ago when she worked at a very fashionable ladies store in the Boonsboro Shopping Center. Her personality was very delightful.. Several years ago I saw her at Belk's cosmetics counter and we had wonderful conversations. She had a great personality and enjoyed people. I am truly saddened by her death. Take care and God Bless......Hermina Hendricks
