    We’ve really missed seeing Edna and Robert at the German festivals since they moved. She had such a great spirit even after her health declined. I hope she’s dancing all the polkas she wants in heaven.

    Robert and Janet, Suzanne and Jay,

    Dwain and I will miss Edna. Although we haven’t seen her in a couple of years, we did communicate on Facebook and phone. She was a dear friend from many years past.
    We also would enjoy Robert and hers visit from time to time.
    Edna was a lovely lady and Christian friend.

    Be blessed.
    Dwain and Ginger
