Mr. Driver, Doug and the Driver family...We thank you for sharing Edie with us (not that you had a choice as she was so giving) . She taught me a lot of things, spent lots of time with us, I have my painting lessons and recipes she shared with me and all the bargain shopping days and lots and lots of memories. Her love of life and friends will truly be cherished. You are blessed to have such a great wife and mom! I will be praying for you all and thinking of you during the difficult time. Hugs and Kisses! Think of you all often!!!!Melinda Caddell-Gambino
Anyone who ever met Edie was blessed by her!! I have very fond memories of the times we spent with the Driver family. To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord!! I look forward to seeing you again Edie.. Kelly & Doug my thoughts and prayers are for your loss.. I love you both...
Kelly, I am not sure if you will even remeber me but I remember you both. When I first came to Midway Baptist ,you two were so friendly that I truely felt welcomed. And as time went on you always had a kind word and a warm smile...such love. My prayers are with you as I pray the Lord will wrap you in His loving arms and carry you through tihis time of loss. Edie was so special and so are you. May God bless you and your family at this time and always.Much love, Carleene

Kelly and Joe and all your family. My heart aches for your loss. I loved Edi. She was and will always be a blessing to me. She gave me a confidence in the Lord in ways that I only know. Pleas aceept my deepest sympathy
To the Driver family: Edie lead me to the Lord in 1986 at Midway Baptist Church.I will always be thankful that she took the time to tell me how to be save. There's no better gift than to know Jesus as my Savior. We can rest assured that she is with our Lord in Heaven today. I have missed seeing her here. She was loved very much for her sweet and thoughtful ways.She certainly touched my life. JoAnne(Crosby) Freeze

Kelly,You and Edie have touched our lives. Edie was a wonderful woman with a ready smile. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. We love you!!!
Kelly & family,My prayers are with you now. Edie was a joy to know and a blessing to everyone that knew her. I feel privileged th have had her as part of my church family. She touched my life and will always be one of my fondest memories. Love and peace to you all.
Kelly and my long lost family in Arkansas, my heart is heavy because I wish more than anything that I could be there with you. I would hug you all and pray with you together; we would laugh and remember. I love this picture of Edie. She looks exactly how I remember her with that smile and cute little button nose. Because I know you lived in Hawai'i for a while and you asked about Kaneohe, I plan to be near the base bay area that I am sure you visited many times in your stay here. I will join you in prayer and send my light at 6:00 am which is 10:00 am your time. I will throw flowers leis that I will make myself into the ocean and say my aloha.I miss you all so much and am truly saddened for the loss of such a caring and thoughtful part of my family. All my love and prayers, Beverly
Uncle Kelly, Doug, and Grannie you and all of the Driver family are in my thoughts and prayers. I have such great memories of visiting Aunt Edie and Uncle Kelly with my Grannie and Uncle Anthony when I was a little girl. Even though it has been many, many years since that visit I will never forget how Aunt Edie helped me paint beautiful pictures for my Mom and Dad. I will think of her every time I look at the paintings she gave to me and my family. I so wish I could be there with you all during this difficult time. Just know I love you and I am with you in spirit.
Driver Family,Joe, Reba and especially Jimmy, you are in our thoughts at this time of great sorrow for you and your family. We are praying for your comfort and peace during this extremely difficult time. Love,The Houston Family
Kelly,Edie was a special lady! She was the first person I met when I attended Midway Baptist Church with Debbi and Paul Hayes. She was so warm and friendly, she left such a good impression of a Christian. I also enjoyed her special talent of teaching others to paint like she did. Her patience was amazing.It was such a joy to see you all last year at the church. I didn't feel you had changed since you left Midway.She will truly be missed!Love and prayers, Barbara Buster
