I'm so sorry to hear that Aunt Edith passed away. I just found out and wish I had known earlier. I'm sure Dad and everyone was there at the gates of heaven to meet her and she is at peace. May God grant you all peace and comfort in the coming days

Dearest Mamaw,

Because of how you loved us, we have always endured as a family.  This is what you and Papaw have taught us - how to be family. That distance does not define our family, that no matter where we are in the world we are always connected to each other by a love that will always endure time and distance.  

We have suffered a lot together as a family. Sissy, Gary and Dad slipped from our grasp much too soon. But in that suffering you taught us to celebrate and give thanks for life as it is today, to find joy in new moments. That life is a blessing. That life goes on. Keep living. Keep getting up every day and moving forward.  Thank God. Hold tight to those we love. This is the cornerstone of who we are as your grandchildren. It is how we love the people in our lives and how we parent our children. It is how we appreciate the beauty in the setting sun and the blanket of stars that light up the night sky...
This is the legacy that you leave from your 86 years in this world, Mrs. Edith Pauline Jones.  You leave LOVE.  You are not gone. You live in the babies of your babies, the love of your love and the life of your life. Always.

Are you alright?
Yes, Mamaw, Im ok. We are all ok. I love you. We all love you.
I love you too.

A wonderful Aunt that will never be forgotten.   I have a lot of good memories that will last forever.  Church memories, great meals, friendship with the kids growing up. All of this was so precious to me. Me and my brother will meet you in heaven some day.  May god bless Uncle Leamon and the family as they go through life.
Love, Shirley and Jackie

We're so sorry to hear of Aunt Edith's passing. The memories of being with her all throughout my childhood are forever etched in my heart. She was so easy to talk to about anything. Always laughing is what I remember. There was always a place to stay when we'd come to the country. Always a meal. Always a tender hug. We will forever miss you but look forward to seeing you again someday. All our love forever!
