My deepest sympathy to Steven, William, Alvin and all of Edith's grandchildren. She will be missed by all of her family and all of her good friends. I remember when I was young Edith gave me this beautiful yellow coat for Xmas. I wore this coat every day and all the kids called me Bubble Bee. I didn't care because I just loved the coat. I was the boys babysitter. Edith you rest in peace.
I will never forget you.
I am signing this TINI because this is what you stilled called me.
