"In three words I can sum up everything I learned about life: it goes on." Robert Frost Edith will be lovingly remembered. I'll never forget the day when she took me down to Sugar Grove and to other family related places in her car, more than 20 years ago, showing me her father's grocery store and those quaint appliances. And when we sat down to have a quick meal somewhere I hung on her lips, eager not to miss a word she said, she suddenly exclaimed: "Gaby, you've got my chin!" And we both had a good laugh. Rest In Peace, Aunt Edith.
