    I, as well as my entire family, am devastated to hear of the news of Edna's tragic, untimely death. She was in our "family" for at least sixty years, great friends with my sister Linda, very much loved by my mother who equally loved her daughter Rhonda. Please pray for her family. She helped you when requested or when you did not even anticipate it; always bought great food to our annual family reunion; could keep you in stitches with her humor; loved her family immensely, her late husband and God. We loved her and were blessed by her love, presence and hope that God reigns his grace and comfort on Bay-Bay, John-John and all other family members.

    I'm still shocked by this news. Edna was the big sister who pierced my ears. She always had a warm smile at home, church or in town. We all grew up as family Cross the Creek and when one hurts we all hurt. God bless her sons, daughters-in-law, grand children, siblings, and other family and friends. God bless us all. I love you.
