Many fond memories of Edith and Al and the kids. Our families grew up together and had a lot of great times. Edith was always a kind and patient woman. She will be missed. Rest in peace.

Edith was one of my mother's dear friends. I will always remember her as smiling, happy and good-natured. She brought her children over to our house in the early 50's to adopt one of two cocker spaniel puppies. I chose to keep the golden one, and they took home the black and white one. Edith, I hope you and mom had a joyous reunion in heaven, as my own mother passed away on March 10 two years ago. Rest safely in the arms of the Lord, Edith.
