Edithe was always such delightful person, and a joy to talk to. My brother Paul's wife Bonnie was Edithe's mother. Our sincere condolences to JR and the family. ... Phil Carter (and Muriel)

I spent many Tuesday mornings with Edithe over this past year at Seacliff Manor. We shared such happy times remembering her parents and grandparents and she spoke lovingly of all her children. We shared a special bond, the time just flew by as we enjoyed each other's company. She held a very special place in my heart-I will always remember a lovely lady! My heartfelt sympathy to all her dear family. Sincerely, Betty Vandervecht (Seacliff Manor volunteer)

I always had a great respect for Mrs. Lewis, she was the first person to teach me French in school. Her kindness to her students was always showing. She had a beautiful smile and would always go out of her way to say hello to me all these years later. Rest in Peace and fly free!!

Dear JR, Bonnie, Becky, Doug and Brian: I am so sorry to hear of the Edith's passing. I had not known that she had moved out of her lovely home, which we visited on many occasions. I have nothing but fond memories of all of the happy times spent in Kingsville with all of you and I truly admired Edith. I wish I could be with you but am bogged down with commitments, both today and tomorrow. You have my heartfelt sympathy for your tremendous loss. No matter how long we live, it is so sad to lose a loved one, especially a Mother. I still have many moments that I grieve for the loss of my Mother (Ruby) but I hold on to wonderful memories that I cherish during those challenging times. My love to all of you as you move forward during this time of sorrow. I do know that Edith will always be with you in spirit.
