Please know that our thoughts and prayers are with you at this time. Aunt Edna was a very special person and although we did not get to see her very often, we enjoyed talking to her by phone regularly and definitely enjoyed our last visit with her which was at a picnic at my house. She was such a joy! I still have a necklace she bought me when I was about 10 years old. It is a heart which has the Lord's Prayer in the center of it. Janie had surgery yesterday so we will not be able to attend the services, but our thoughts are with you.
