    If tears could build a stairway,
    and memories a lane, I’d walk
    right up to heaven and bring you
    home again.

    Rest easy sweet Mom-Mom
    You will be missed by many

    We Love you,
    Krissy, Paul, Michael, Alicia, Mason, Dylan & Brooke

    Edna-My thoughts and memories of you will always be a part of my life. I will always remember the bargains that you found, that kept all of the us with stuff on our tables.
    The OC trips and the AC trip we made to the slots.

    You made the spaghetti with stuffed meatballs:)

    You will be missed by all. We all need an angel and we are very lucky that we have you!

    BTW-when you see my mom-tell her- I miss her!

    Hugs
    May you RIP!
    Love you always!

    So sorry to hear of the passing of Ms. Coover. I got to know her while working with her as one of my patients in a nursing home. She was one of my first patients, when I was still “wet behind the ears” as a fresh graduate. Her being so sweet and kind helped to allay my anxiety of working for the first time out of school. I’ll always remember Ms. Edna. Please accept my deepest condolences, and may the “God of all comfort” provide you with peace during this difficult time. – 2 Corinthians 1:3
