I will always remember growing up in Polk City,living down the street from Edith. I was friends with her daughter Penny Jo and we had alot of good times going back and forth from her house to mine.....good memories of those days. I got to wish Edith a Happy 80th Birthday when she was in Iowa in 2009. I am sure glad I got to visit with her, even if it was a short one. Now she is in the hands of God, no better place to be than that.
