Heaven has another angel. We have not know Ron and Edna for a very long time. but we loved to be with them. Edna was one of a kind and the best hostess ever. Their house was home to evertone that walked in the door. She will be missed by so many people. Our love and prayers go to Ron and the whole family.

Please accept my deepest sympathy. Sometimes just knowing that others truly care can be uplifting. Almighty God "is close to the brokenhearted; He saves those who are crushed in spirit." Psalms 34:18 He also promises "many of those asleep in the dust of the earth will wake up." Daniel 12:2 May meditating on this wonderful future blessing and what it will mean for the unification of your family bring you comfort.

Bill & Mary

Our love for Edna will always be in our lives. We will miss her and always think of her when we are having a good time and want her there with us. Ron will be included in our thoughts because it's difficult to think of one without the other but one day we will join her in heaven. God always blesses those that look to Him for love, guidance and comfort, however, no Gene Tracy tapes.
