Edna was my dear cousin whom I respected and enjoyed spending time with. One of my favorite memories was when we both packed up all our kids and headed to Honderds pool for the day. We has such fun! Now she has reunited with her dear husband Peter and together they are enjoying the presence of their Lord and Savior. My deepest sympathy to you all in the loss of your precious Mother.
