    Vern, this is such a beautiful picture of Edith. We have been thinking about you, and love you and Edith so much. We will miss her. I know you will miss her, but I also know you are glad she’s not suffering any more. She is in her crown and glory. We so enjoyed the times you and Edith could make it to our house, and also the hospitality shown in your home as well. We will always remember our visits and going to church together for so many years. You have both been such a joy to us! Prayers are with you. Love you. Bill and Debbie
