George, Carrie, Eric and Grace - we're so very sorry for your loss. What a beautiful obituary of a life well lived. There's a Tuscarora Indian proverb that I hope brings you comfort, "They are not dead who live in the hearts they leave behind." Hugs! ~ Rebecca, Dave, Megan & Patrick

I am so saddened to hear of the loss of sweet Edna! She was such an amazing lady, the epitome of sweet southern charm. I was lucky enough to experience her “sweet tea in a mason jar”.and learn her secret recipe! Love and prayers to you all at this time.

I had the pleasure of meeting Ms. Edna when I moved to Wilmington 8 years ago. There was never a time thereafter that she was any different from the very first day I met her. Talk about an Angel <3 You were a beautiful person who made a beautiful life. Im going to miss our chats and your smiling face. #RIP mybeautifulsweetfriend. Strawberry Season will never be the same...

We are sad now, because she was such a strong sweet lady. But, we will always have our memories of Edna to make us smile. She was a great person who added so much to every life she touched. I can't take your pain away, but I can be here to talk or reminisce if you want. Our Merciful God says "Who will separate us from the love of Christ? Will hardship, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor rulers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord." - Romans 8:35, 37- 39 Let us pray: Dear Lord, We thank you that nothing can seperate us from the love of God in Christ. Not even death. For those who live in The Lord, when they leave the body, they are forever happy in the presence with The Lord. Thank you Lord for Edna's life, and all the years we shared with her. We lift her to you today, in honour of the good we saw in her and the love we felt from her. Please give us the strength to leave Edna in your care, in the knowledge of eternal life through Jesus Christ. Amen.

We went to Zion church together and John and I were talking and can’t remember a time when we looked at Edna Faye when she wasn’t smiling!
