Edna was a bright light at Oxford. I loved her dearly. She loved everyone, always happy and willing to help in anyway she could. She will be missed. I feel very privileged and honored to have been a care giver for her. She was a beautiful woman on the inside and out. Heaven gained a wonderful angel.
