Our dad will be missed and we thank the Lord for His grace in allowing our dad to see 82 years of life. As he did come to know The Lord we know he is in a better place. May the God of peace keep us until that great reunion.


Bro Edwards. You will always be remembered for your gentle spirit and kind smile everytime I saw you at church. Rest in Heaven. God Bless your family.

We will certainly miss Bro. Edwards. He was very quiet and was always smiling. He always shared some peppermint with me on Sundays when he was at church. God Bless and keep his family! Sis. Johnnie M Collins, Evening Star Tabernacle Missionary Baptist Church Clerk.


I remember Dad’s trip to Pennsylvania to pic fruit and returning with the biggest apples we’d ever seen. He advised, encouraged me to get a trade as a young man. Once when we were really young, he performed this feat of blowing a brilliant stream of fire from his mouth, into the air, amazing it was. Nice to know I had a Dad!!



Dad taught us about workinh hard and self discipline when it came my education. I have been blessed by both and I will continue to instill in my grandgirls to do the same to make it in this life.
Thanks dad.
