Aunt Edith, you will always be remembered with love! I was in awe of your style when I was a little girl. I never saw lace hosiery before you had it on, and I thought you must be on the cutting edge of fashion! We will always miss you!

My grandma was an amazing women I had learned everything I know from her from watching jeopardy and answering the questions to braiding my hair we could talk for hours when she would babysit me. I love her so so much and she will be missed greatly.
