    There was no one that will ever be as wonderful as Ms Edna. She was truly kind, loving, gracious, and beautiful both inside and out. I know she touched the lives of many young children that went to church with her, as well as she touched my heart too. I’m thankful that I got the privilege to know her, and I’m even more blessed that she loved my son as she did. I know he thought the world of her, and he loved to listen to all the stories she would tell him. Felts will not be the same without her there.

    Edna will forever be in my heart.I met Edna on March 7 2014.We were both eating at the same restaurant and started talking.we ended up spending about 7 hours together that included watching a Christian movie and just talking. We started our friendship there and it just grew.Edna was someone to confide in and to call for advice and she knew so much to help you with any problems.Her favorite saying was I’m too blessed to be depressed. I will miss EDNA and keep her memory alive by remembering just how much she loved life.Edna lived to tell jokes.she loved to make people laugh.she would crack me up about how she would talk about Toto, her daughter’s dog. Toto loved to sit in her lap and it made her happy. Edna loved to sing..she had a beautiful voice.I guess I was the last one to take her out to eat..We went to crackle barrel in London. I got the waitress to put us up front at the big round table so to have plenty of room.she ordered chicken and dumpling. She really enjoyed herself. I would bring her a small frosty from Wendy’s on my way to her house sometimes and she loved it.Edna had a way of making u feel special. I felt loved and knew it when she hugged me.I will miss those hugs.Taking her to her doctor appointments was so much fun.she would sing and then tell me of her past trips to other places.I loved to hear her stories of the Holy Land when she went there.Yes I will miss her and love her always.Edna was like a mom to me and my heart breaks but I know where she is and she would say to me that when she leaves this old world she is going to be with Jesus.Rest in peace my sweet Edna

    I was saddened to hear that my dear friend had passed away. I have fond memories of our time together, of her patriotism, and her love of Gold Star Chili. We will miss you, Edna. Heaven gets you now.
