Edna, you will always have a special place in my heart. We go back many years. Shared many fun times & secrets. You were a real supporter when I was diagnosed with cancer 18 years ago & again 2 years ago. You gave me strength. I know you have been they a lot too. I’ll always remember you with a smile & cherish the breaks we took together at work. Sweet dreams my dear friend.

I wanted to offer my sincere sympathy to Edna's family. I worked with her for quite a few years. She was such a jolly soul and I loved her ornery giggle. She loved her family and talked about them all the time! RIP girlfriend.
