Many Hugs, Loves and Prayers to all of you as you celebrate a Loving Lady who never met a stranger and treated all of us kids as we were one of the family! I loved the trips to her place for a visit. She always had fresh baked goodies to stuff us with and giggles to share with us too! I am so sorry for your loss, but so happy to have had the opportunity to grow up with her loving influence. What a great lady and family she created!
Much Love, Lynne Edens & The Edens Family
