    I have so many good memories of the two of us in our younger years. Many good times –always laughing. When I think of you, it will be with a smile in my heart.

    My condolences to Edythe’s family. I only new her for a short time while I was working at Lakeside Beikirch. I was the recreation person on her floor. She enjoyed her crafts so much, and brought a ray of sunshine to everyone. I will always remember the fun we had making her Kentucky Derby hat, and then wearing it when we did the Derby race. I will miss her. My prayers are with you all.

    To the Family, my sincere sympathy In your loss. I just know Eddie is in a better place, and she is looking down on all the friends she made over the years. It was a honor and a privilege to have known her. I was one of her home health aides from Visiting Nurse Service, and she will be missed. She had a wonderful sense of humor. She knew how to put a smile on my face. She left a lasting impression on me, and I will never forget her! Love Linda

    I took care of Edythe at LBCC… I visited her on Mother’s Day and brought her cash word lotto tickets:) I was just thinking about her and what an amazing woman she was and how close I grew to her in the time we spent together… She will always be the patient I hold dearest to my heart:)
