Sympathies to Chris, Rusty and family. I have so many happy memories of your mother. Growing up, I always referred to her as Mrs. Benson. A few years ago, after knowing her for 50+ years, I finally asked her if I could call her Edith! She laughed about that, and she was Edith from then on.

So dear Edith, you will be lovingly remembered!
