    Dear Litz & Betty,
    We are sorry to hear that Edith has passed away. She was hoping to make it to 100. But what a great 99 years!!
    I enjoyed talking with her over the years during her Frankfort years. She had many stories to share of her younger years and a great memory of those times. I will miss our visits and conversations.
    Enjoy Florida this winter.
    Helen & Dennis

    I always enjoyed the many conversations we had at the clinic when she would come in. Wish she had made it to her 100th! Not many can say 99 though! My condolences to the family.
