Christine & all of Edith’s family. Deepest condolences in the loss of your loved one. May God give you the strength in the coming days to deal with your loss.

Crystal, my heart breaks for you. So sorry to hear of your moms passing, I know how much you loved your mom. You would light up when asked how she was doing. I speak from experience when I say losing a mom is the biggest loss you will experience. May your faith, family and good friends carry you through the next few days. God Bless, you are in my thoughts and prayers.

So sorry to hear of your moms passing. May the many memories you have of her bring you smiles during the tears, bring you laughter through your sorrow, and a sense of peace through each day, as she would only wish for your smiles and bright spirit to continue knowing she will always be watching over you.

Edith and her family have been a part of our lives for a very long time. It was sad to hear that she had passed. While we knew the day was coming, we didn’t want to acknowledge that it was here. Edith’s happiness embraced everyone around her. She was always so pleasant and had a smile for everyone. Deepest sympathies to her children, grandchildren and other family members. You have lost a true treasure in your lives. May God bless you and keep you.

It was with great sadness that I learned of Edith’s passing. The memories I have of her coming to our home to play cards or share a meal are of a woman who enjoyed life. Edith loved to laugh, she brightened any gathering she was at. Dispite, or perhaps because, of her challenges I always felt she embraced life and wanted to get everything she could from it. The care that Liddy and the rest of the family gave Edith was inspiring to see. It was love that kept her alive for the time she had. Edith was a very small lady, she will leave a very large hole in the hearts of all that knew her. I will always remember that little laugh and quiet voice she had. God bless you all.

Our Deepest Sympathy to all the family. May She Rest In Peace!!!
