Edith was a wonderful mother-in-law over these past 16 years that I have been married to her first-born, Rita Kay. She and I watched quite a few football and basketball games together on TV, and she was excited and happy when the Missouri teams did well! I will miss the wonderful baked-goods she would make (in large quantities)for me to eat and take to work, so that I could share cookies, brownies, and lemon-bars with my friends. She was faithful in her church attendance, and particularly loved contributing to the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association in Charlotte, NC. She even told me she liked my sermons! I will miss Edith, and look forward to seeing her in Heaven one day.
