We are sorry for Edna's passing, As a teenager I spent a lot of time at the McCrackens making music withThurman and playing board games with Elsie and Edna. That is until Mr. Jarvis decided it was time to go to bed by knocking on the wall.
Sorry we won't be able to attend Edna's service as we have appointments in Asheville but our thoughts and prayers are with you all.
