My deepest condolences to all of you in the loss of your Mother, Edna. She was a dear neighbor of mine for many years and will be missed. I’ve been gone a few years and often thought about your Mom. She was a caring, special person and you all were very blessed to have her with you for so many years. Dar Striker
