Our hearts go out to the family. Jamie is a good friend of ours and it is apparent through him the kind of person she was. She raised a wonderful son and she will be missed. Her legacy will live on through her children and grandchildren and that should be celebrated. Her memory will live on through them. We love you Jamie and we are sorry for your loss.

I knew Edie mostly through her daughter and my daughter in law, Elisa Petree, and both were as beautiful, loving , and caring as anyone I've ever known. And, above all, totally selfless. The world is a lesser place without them.

To Jamie, Rick and their families, I offer my sincere condolences. Grieve, as you will, for the passing of she who gave you life, and loved and nurtured you throughout the remainder of hers, is indeed a difficult burden to bear. But may you find some small degree of comfort in knowing her pain is gone and that she is now in that better place. And Jim, Lori and Elisa were there, with open arms, to greet her.

May God bless you all.
