We thought the world of Edith. Whenever I'd get a call, about something that needed fixed, she could almost always tell you what was wrong and what needed to be done. I can't remember the details, but I'll always remember getting a call, " the young man here fixing, whatever, thinks he knows what he's doing, but this isn't right, you better run in." LOL.

I'm so glad we were in town and got to see her a few weeks ago. She'll be missed.
