      Edith was an amazing Mother-in-law. We shared the same passion for landscaping, flowers and birds. I had many wonderful Sunday dinners at her home. Sweets and desserts were always ready when you walked in her house. If there was anything I didn’t know how to make in the kitchen, I would know before I left her house. I will miss our talks and walks through her yard as she would tell me the history of every plant she had. I love you Edith. You were truly a Godly woman.
