I remember Mr. Edwards with loving thoughts. My mother and I use to shop at Jerry’s Produce on Baseline Road in Little Rock. Mr. Edwards always helped us with heavy lifting, etc. Later he had another grocery store & I shopped there also. At both places, teenagers were hired to work there and were treated & paid fairly. I’ll be missing Mr. Edwards very much.

John and Glinda are my next door neighbors. I will always remember his sweet spirit with my grandson Case. When Case came to stay with me he would go see papa John little did I know that he was getting some candy and a sweet smile with his candy. I celebrate Josh's passing from this world to Heaven. For I know he’s dancing with Jesus. I thank God for letting me know just a small part of a great man. Peace and comfort for the family in knowing that he’s in the presence of or KING .

I only had the pleasure of meeting John about a year ago but I will never forget the day he told his wife Glenda that he would walk down to Janet's friends house because she would take him where he needed to go because at that time his truck good was messed up and believe me I would have taken him to . I love you Glenda,Janet and Tammy
