Family & Friends,
My heart breaks for you all during this difficult time. Edna was a one of a kind woman. She was tough as nails but had a heart of gold for everyone she encountered. Her laugh could light up a room. I pray for your peace and that God may comfort you, for she no longer is suffering but has been reunited with those she has lost before her.

Such a sad loss.. you were so positive teaching me to look at the bright side. Your favorite thing to say to me was " it cannot get any worse and what more can we ask for but to take it one day at a time"
I will miss your positive attitude and spunk. you were definitely one of kind and how blessed I was to have mown you. I will miss you may the angels open the gates of heaven to you to always remind me that you were a super star.
May you be a bright angel and star in the sky and I will always remember you in my heart.
