Edna and Woodie were our neighbors many years ago in lurose estates in Hagerstown. They were simply good people who we were blessed to know. I extend my sympathies to Edna’s family.

Bob & Marge, I am sorry to hear of your loss. While I never got to Edna I am pleased to know you Bob and because of you I know that she was truly a remarkable woman. She raised truly an amazing son who carried for many throughout his service in active pastoral ministry and continues to care even in retirement. In this sense, Edna legacy lives on not solely in the words spoken about her, but in the lives she formed and their bold proclamation of the gospel- the hope of resurrection. So while I did not know her personally I can still see the fruits of her faithfulness, knowing that she now is in the presence of her savior. May the lives she impacted continue to speak to love and grace of Christ. With great hope, Clayton
