I am so sorry for your loss. Edna and I were so very close through high school a few years ago! When we met again at our 25th class reunion, it was like we had never been separated. That’s how friends are.

I have such sweet memories of Edna. Back in the late 70’s/early 80’s, Nick worked in Texas with my Dad, Shorty Rogers. We had just lost my mom a while before, and Edna was so wonderful to me. She taught me how to make roast and gravy, and to this day, I think of her every time I make it. To Nick, Amanda and Lori, I pray that God grants you peace and comforts you during this time of loss. I pray that you will rejoice in the beautiful memories you have of your mom, and in the knowledge that the burdens of this life are no more. She is free of Alzheimer’s and pain and whole again. May God bless you all.

I know this is such a hard time for all of you. We have all sen Edna go through so much in the past few years and especially the past few months. Edna was such a “Special Person” to all of us and was always a good friend and someone to listen to you when you needed her. I will miss her so much but we all know that she is in a much better place now and she is well and with her family who is already in Heaven and I know my Dad was right there waiting to give her a big hug when she got there. Just know that you all are in our thoughts and prayers. If you need anything you know all you have to do is call us and we will be there for you. Love, Marsha, Dave and Ms. Peebles

I remember Aunt Edna made me eat peas when I was little and I swallowed each one with milk, lol.

Aunt Edna always made you feel welcome and she had a huge heart. She is and always will be deeply missed.
