Thank you for signing Edith B. King's Guestbook
For as far back as I can remember, I have always thought that Aunt Edith was just beautiful! Not only was she beautiful on the outside but inside as well. She always made you feel like you the most important person in the world. Bless her sweet heart!

Mrs. Edith and Mr. Jack were our grandma’s neighbors for as long as we can remember. Every time we would visit BB before she died we would go see them. Mrs. Edith was always so sweet and we enjoyed our times getting to see and talk to them. She and Mr. Jack will be missed tremendously! Prayers to the family. 💜
Love, Jamie, Tiffany, Cole, and Summer DeLuca
