The world lost one of the most amazing people on Saturday. My gramma, my Baba, my champion, my idol really. She was 4’11 of fiery red-headed passion. She was never afraid to tell someone how “the cows ate the cabbage”. She had the biggest heart and she fiercely adored all her grands. She was so excited to welcome her newest Grand—little Samuel Levi. To say she will be missed is the understatement of the century. Family. Love. Truth. Morals. Toughness. Edna Mae, you were one phenomenal lady.
Edna Mae, you were one of my best friends and Resturant work-mates in the 1950s. Work, double dates, fun and we kept in touch for all these years. Hated to hear you've gone. See you later.
