    I was very saddened by the news of Aunt Edith’s passing. However, to know that she is now at peace, with no more worldly cares and discomfort, is a great consolation.

    At this difficult time for the family, I hope that cherishing the memories of good times will bring comfort.

    Aunt Edith was a great lady, a warm and caring person. I have very fond memories of the occasions when I was privileged to be in her company, and I greatly miss our exchange of birthday and Christmas greetings.

    Aunt Edith will be sorely missed. This world was a better place because of her prescence in it.

    I may have been small, but I remember Edith coming to visit when we lived on Garden. How excited we were about the pins she brought us from the Olympics. 🙂

    Our thoughts and prayers are with her family. May there be many sweet memories shared. With much love, Christian and Erin
