It is always a say day when you lose someone you love. Aunt Edna has always been special to myself and family. You could talk to her about anything and know it would never leave that room. The advice she gave was always right on point. She was a great Mom, aunt and friend and anyone who ever knew her was lucky to have had her in their lives. She will be terribly missed.
