My beautiful Aunt Edna! I have so many wonderful memories from as far back as I can remember. We all need to hang on to those special memories. Next to my Mom, Edna will be missed and thought about a lot. I am so very sorry that I will not be able to attend her funeral because of medical and family committments. Just know that I loved her so very much and I knew that she loved me too. I always felt like I had a special bond with her (as I'm sure she made everyone feel that way).
Don and I send special thoughts, prayers and sincere sympathy to the whole family. Love you all!

With love,
Jodeen and Don
