  1. I met Edna and Bill in the 70s at Highland Hospital where my mother worked for 25 years. They are two of the most caring and kind people I have ever met.

  2. Edna was our round dance teacher for many years and she and Bill were good friends of ours.  We appreciate all the time Edna spent on lessons for us and others; she provided many years of dancing enjoyment.  Edna was a marvelous teacher.  She had all the dance cues memorized and didn’t need to look at the cuer notes.  She was amazing, and we miss her very much.
