My dearest Auntie Jean. What funny and fabulous family stories we share. I remember that I was honored to light the candles on your's and Uncle Eddie's wedding day. I remember our family reunions at Lake Texoma.....Sunday dinners at Grandma Nettie's with everyone who could get a seat around her round dining table on Porter Street in Sherman. I remember our family traveling from Sherman to Garland to see baby Kathy B get her bath on Sunday morning and staying for lunch. I remember the visits while your family lived far away in Colorado. I remember your laugh and kidding with Uncle Ed and my Dad and Mom. I remember you bought me a lavender shirt waist dress for my graduation present in 1960 while we were visiting you in Colorado. I remember coming to your house in Dallas with baby Steve and we would spend the day doing my ironing (I was always behind it seemed). Well my dear we loved you then and we love you now. You are in a better place and what a reunion you can have with those who have gone before. Glad we all shared some memories!! Good night and love your niece, Fran Fran M. Edwards, January 11, 2008 "Naomi", "Homer" here! I'm sure nobody that reads this will appreciate this but you and I. We had good times Kiddo, teasing each other about our names at family get-togethers. Sure was fun to watch the kids grow up!!! I know your going to happy times now. I know you will miss kids and grandkids, but I really know they understand! "God be with you and keep you until we meet again" Trav Homer Travis Edwards, January 11, 2008
