    My deepest sympathy for you all at this very sad time. May God be will you all. Know that she is at peace now. Memories will always keep her alive to you. Losing a loving parent leaves such a void in your life. I lost my dad in May and not a day goes by that you don’t wish you could just talk to them one more time. Peace and Love to you all.

    To Edith’s Family,

    I knew “Aunt Edith” through her niece Marge Waterfield, and she always made me feel like one of the family. She was such a sweet lady and had a wonderful sense of humor. She will be missed, but remembered. Prayers are with the family.

    Ralph, Dale, and Virgil,

    Apologies… I only learned tonight about the loss of your mother. She had to be one of the sweetest women I can recall knowing in my childhood. Dad would drag all of us kids to every place possible so that he could hang out with his buddies. But when we knew it was YOUR home we were going to, every one of us was happy! An evening of Shorty’s stories and Edith’s homemade root beer and I was in heaven – absolute heaven. I am truly sorry to know she is gone. I am just so happy she graced my life.

    With love,
    ~Jo Ann Medley
