Patty and family,
We sure enjoyed the last visit we had with Edith and she got her hair cut. She was a great lady, and a wonderful friend. She was active in the hospital Guild with us and at church, we will all miss you but we know you stepped on those golden streets and ran to see the Lord and those who had went on before. Love to you Patty and family. Good night Edith, and we will see you on that morning!!!
