Aunt Edith will be missed. Aunt Tevis used to call Mom several times a day. After she passed Edith called Mom a lot and Mom called her too. She, like her sisters, was always sincere in her thanks when I shared copies of old pictures, newspaper clippings and such. I enjoyed her telling stories about the old days. She had a lot of detail to offer, like the lion stories.
