One Condolence for “Edith May Boyd”

    I am so sorry to hear of Edith’s passing. She was such a good neighbor in Antioch. We knew that Edith and Don would welcome any of us into their home. Edith was always smiling and pleasant and fun to be around. All of you have our deepest sympathy. I’m in South Carolina for the week or I’d be there.
    Sharon and Dick Wyrick
