Little did I know that a friend in high school would again become a close friend years later. Edie and her family became close friends with my family. My wife, Sally, and Edie worked together became very close friends and "shopping buddies". Edie was a wonderful person, a very loving wife, mother and grandmother. Edie fought extremely hard in her battle with cancer. She never complained. Heaven has surely gained a wonderful new angel!
