Louise Edna Edwards (Wilson)
I met this wonderful person in December 1982 while searching for family history of my father. She was my father's sister, and we became very close and communicated often. I wish we could have lived closer so we could have spent more time together. We, my wife and daughter, visited her on several occasions that are and always will be wonderful memories. We have even more memories from a visit that she made to our home. During her visit, we spent some quality time visiting many southern locations, such as downtown Charleston, the old slave market, a lighthouse, the old Civil War Battery, the beautiful gardens, having lunch, and walking at the Isle of Palms Beach. It was a spectacular day that we both gained a tremendous amount of knowledge about family and each other. It still is one of my most memorable days.
I guess one of my favorite things I will cherish and always keep are the many letters I have received from her. Her writing skills were very good, and she would use every centimeter of the paper and every direction for little notes to finish a letter. I truly enjoyed her letters.
The prayers and people praying for me during my lung transplant and triple heart by-pass surgery and recovery was astonishing, because this wonderful lady not only prayed for me religiously, she contacted an amazing number of people asking them to pray for me. People in many states across America and beyond were praying for me before, during, and after my transplant. I had no idea of all the prayers going up for me. I received so many cards from people I did not know, and from so many locations across our great country. I still don't know who or where the prayers came from, but do know God was with me and all went well. I know God heard the prayers, and I give Aunt Louise credit for me being alive today.
She had a humorous side also that was evident in her letters and conversation. She loved to laugh even during times that I knew she did not feel well. The world needs a lot more people like Louise Edwards.
I am truly going to miss her, the mail, the phone conversations, her fantastic Bible knowledge, Bible verse quotes and scripture locations, and our many discussions for fixing the government. I have never met anyone who in my opinion was a stronger and more dedicated Christian. She loved the Lord and would share that love with all.
I know she is enjoying heaven and God is definitely enjoying their conversations and time together.
My family and I truly loved and will miss this outstanding lady.
Happy Home Coming Aunt Louise.

Louise was a dear friend to my mother, Priscilla Kemerly (passed away in 2007) during her years at Fortville Nazarene Church and beyond. She was so sweet, loved to laugh, and such a wonderful, godly woman. Can picture your mother and mine delighting now together as they often did in talking about the things of God, yet now in the presence of Jesus. My thoughts & prayers are with you.
Sharyn, I'll always remember your Mom with that sparkle in her eye just before she hit you with a joke. Loved her spunk. She was a great lady and a wonderful witness for Christ. Our best to you.

WITH MY DEEPEST SYMPATHY,MAY THE LOVE OF GOD SUSTAIN YOU.
I worked with Louise at Indiana Bell for a number of years and thought Louise was a beautiful person both inside and out. I know she is in loving arms in heaven and send the family prayers and love in this time of sorrow.
