My aunt Edith was a wonderful lady. She could be as cantankerous as anyone could imagine, but you knew all along that she loved you with all her heart. My sister, her husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our visit with her a few years ago. I'm sure my kids have fond memories of visiting her and Don when they lived in North Hollywood. She will be missed.
