I called Edith when my youngest was 6 weeks old and the other 2 were 7 and 9 and asked if she could babysit. Her answer? "I guess I could try it for awhile." She was 65 at the time and Homer had died 2 years before. For the next 13 years this wonderful lady never missed one day, never showed up late, kept my house spotless, laundry and dishes done and loved my babies like they were her own! So many things I could mention of wonderful memories of her. I have said many times over I would never have made it if it weren't for her. She was truly an angel! Thanks for loaning her to us. Wendy
