Aunt Edie is an angel. Every time I heard her voice she would make everything brighter. I looked forward to it. She was a strong person with a lot of life experience. She would share stories with me from time to time and I had deep respect for everything she had done. Christmas time was always a special time to talk with her for me. She and my parents were very close and did a lot of things together. In 1969 she made my brother Steve and I Christmas stockings out of red corduroy with beaded names. They capture that magical special feeling on Christmas morning. We still have those stockings and that wonderful connection that she gave us so many years ago. I cherish putting her stocking up every year. Since then we have traded so many talks, pictures and gifts. Im going to miss her dearly but she has given us so much more and I know she wants me to keep all those wonderful things close. Thank you Aunt Edie for all your beautiful letters and loving us so much. I know you're happy and how much you love us all. I love you too. Your voice will be right there inside me. - Love, Scott, Mishelle, Greyson and Grant

It was with deep sadness that we heard of edies passing. She was a very special person and the dearest of a friend. Loved her very much and will greatly miss her. Even though not as frequent as they should have been I will miss our phone calls. No matter what mood I could have been in she always uplifted me and we would have our laughs. Rest in peace my sweet Edie. Love Diana and Don
