Eddith was a truly lovely person, and I was blessed to know her. She took me under her wing and made my job much easier with her knowledge and engaging personality. My thoughts and prayers are with her family.

Now “B” is back together with Ben, and Aunt Joyce, Uncle Doug, and Dallis and they can run like children, with no pain. They have no more worries and are surrounded by God’s amazing love. Edith was always so friendly and kind. I know how much she was loved and will be missed. My condolences to all who loved her, and especially Bill, Pam, and Erin. I love you!

I loved my Aunt Eddith with all my heart. Even tho she wasn't my actual aunt. She gave me my first puppy which I grew up with. I always loved to see her and Uncle BG coming because I loved to listen to her talk and she was so much fun. There is and always will be a special place in my heart for my Aunt Eddith. My thoughts and prayers are with Ben and his wife.

My husband's mother and Eddith's father were siblings . I always regretted our families did not get together more and get better acquainted. We did meet in person once and corresponded. She was a great lady. Rest in peace.

Eddith was a very dear friend. Loved her beautiful smile. I met her in Memphis, TN in 1960's. She Ben, my sister and I drove from Brownsville, Texas to Memphis. We had a blast all the way. Not a dull moment. I am sorry Bill for your loss and I pray God's peace and comfort surrounds you and your family.

Eddith was my sister/sister-in-law. A part of my family as far back as I have memory. A beautiful woman who shared her love with us, and made us happy when we were children with Christmas gifts and many things she brought us at other times. Her presence now graces the life just over the river, and I look forward to seeing her there and hearing her laughter once again. I hope she will still tell the stories about my, um, shall I say bratiness when I was a child. I would like to hear them again.
