Our deepest sympathy to the entire Eder family. The Eders were our "Next Door Neighbors" in Langford and Mary Ann a 1952 North Collins Central School Classmate of Ray. She will be missed. Good memories from the past. God bless all.

I remember your Mom as a gentle lady who suffered much but complained little--she was always so grateful for any small deed. I truly enjoyed her company when I went to see your Dad while he recovered from the fall from the roof. (I'm not sure that HE was as happy to see me!)
She loved her family and home--may she find another beautiful home in Heaven with your Dad!
God bless you all and give her the reward she so richly deserves,
Bern Folts
