Edna Mae King
May 14, 2018
So many wonderful memories with this crazy lady. She was one of a kind and I guess everyone who ever met her walked away with a smile on their face and loved her. I loved her very much. I would see her and always say " Edna Mae...you're still alive?!" She would always return with "yes you nut, and you are still crazy as ever". You will be missed Edna Mae by your family and friends but we know you are in a better place. Fly high my friend and keep that smile going in Heaven. You were loved.
