  1. Boys, This Christmas will be sad without your Mom, but the gift that God gave you with her can never be replaced. We sometime do not realize that they are gifts that are God given just as the redeemer Jesus Christ was for all man kind. Now we have memories which will last our life time. Just one ” Remember that school morning when you Charles was in tears because you were stitched in fiberglass fibers from your Mon washing the curtains (fiber glass) with you and your sisters school cloths. There are many fond memories that I recall. It was a blessing to visit Edna two years ago. God Bless YOU ALL! Jerry & Mary Horkey

  2. The length of life doesn’t diminish the sorrow when that life ends. May your memories of her in this life sustain you until you are again together.

    Our sympathies, Melvin and Dixie Kucera

    Edna was such a kind, friendly, beautiful woman. I felt blessed for having known her for a few years. She enriched the lives of all she knew. Please know you will all be in my thoughts and prayers in the coming days. I am sure you have many happy memories to cherish, even though you are grieving her passing. ? from Eunie Christensen, Clive, IA
