Condolences from family and friends

I became friends with Edith when I started visiting her a year or so ago at Victoria Manor. I usually went once a week and we would talk about any number of things - Edith was interested in many subjects and was always interested in what was going on with me or her children and grandchildren. I told her she was "my role model"! Her sense of humour was terrific, her forberance under the difficult situation of losing her sight and hearing was exemplary. She enjoyed her "stories" that she read on her device so much, and she would often tell me what was going on in her current story. We enjoyed each other's company. We were friends. I will miss her. She was a truly fine lady and an inspiration to me and others who knew her. God bless her and her family to whom I send my sincere condolences.

My wife Jane had been a weekly visitor for about a year and a half with Edith when she was staying at Victoria Manor in Lindsay. I had the good fortune of meeting Edith and seeing her on a few occasions. She was an inspiration to me and Jane with her spirit, sense of humour and friendliness. As I age I will keep the memory of her love of life and incredible enthusiasm. She had a wonderful positive influence on me and the memory of her is cherished.
