    Remembering Edie from our Campfire Days in the 70’s.
    I knew she moved to Maine because I met her Son while walking by his home some time ago.He told me she had moved to Maine.
    We had such good times with our girls back then, and Edie made that so.
    She was a credit to society and will be remembered for that from the people who knew her.
    My Sincere Sympathy to her Family and may their memories bring them comfort in the coming years.
