So sad to hear about Aunt Edna. I have many fond memories - being in Savannah and riding on that funny bike to visiting together at Family Reunions and here at my house! We will miss sweet Aunt Edna, Nancy

Edna & Ira were such a sweet couple and we were so glad that they chose to move to Springfield. We enjoyed spending time with them over the years. Edna was a great worker in our church. We loved her and she will be greatly missed.

Please accept my sincere condolences for the loss of your dear, loved one. Death is hard to deal with. Even Jesus gave way to tears when Lazarus died (John 11:35). But our Heavenly Father views death as an enemy and promises to put an end to it (1 Cor 15:26). We can look forward to being reunited with our loved ones again.
