Edna was the kindest woman and the best Sunday School teacher I ever had. Much to our delight she would always end our lesson by reading her beautiful poetry. She touched my heart at such a young age and I will never forget her kindness and her devotion to Jesus. Her smile would light up any room.

I worked with Ms Edna at American Tobacco. Ms Edna was a very sweet lady and a true Godly woman. My favorite story was the one she shared with me about how the Lord blessed her daughter after a lengthy illness. Ms Edna said her daughter gave birth to a beautiful grand daughter which I too believe was a miracle. My other favorite story was the one she told about the new Cadillac she bought herself as a retirement present. I know Ms Edna was welcomed into Heaven with open arms and I know she heard "well done my faithful child". Sending prayers up tonight for her family.
