Edna I miss you so much. You're a beautiful person inside and out. I'd love for you to be here with us but God knew that you were tired so you closed your eyes and fell asleep in the safety of Gods arms.

Oh my first best friend. We were so young when we met I don't remember my life before you. I thank God for you and your family. Your Mom and Dad took me to church and treated me like I was one of their own children. We played church in the yard and had a good time "praising the Lord". You and your family are the reason I have the relationship I have with Christ. I will not be able to say the next time I am on that side of town I will stop and see Edna. We will see each other again just not on this side of eternity. I love you bunches my first friend.

Edna always had a word for me whenever I saw her. She's the one that told me I would go back to PNC the last time I was laid off. She was an encourager and a definite warrior for Christ and will be greatly missed. Love you Winford family! You will continue to be in my thoughts and prayers.

Yesterday, I thought about one of the brightest lights in this family I was blessed to join has been extinguished.  But then I looked at the stars in the night sky and saw a beautiful bright one. And I knew it was you. Proud to call you my niece.  Laura Mickey

Oh, my first best friend. I was trying to remember how long I've  known you and your family. My first memory's as a child are with you. You were my first best friend. We saw each other every day until the day my family moved. We never stopped being friends. When we would see each other it was like we had never been away from each other. You and your family were who introduced me to Christ. We would play church in the yard. For that I am eternally grateful.
When I was on that side of town I would say I'm going to see my best friend but I never did. Now it is too late. It gives me joy because I know I will see you again, but it makes me cry because I will never see you on this side of eternity again. I love you and I will miss you dearly.
I love you my first best friend.
