So very sorry to hear of Cousin Jo Edwards passing. I have so many fond memories of our childhood and young adult visits. My
Newberry and South Carolina family are so much a part of my good life chapters. Jo Edward always had a laugh to give and to share. A fishing story to tell and a pigeon race to recant. Catfish stew in a black pot and water fights at Lake Murry. Joe Edward was a fun Cousin. Along with the warm South Carolina Sun he gave off a warm life presence that I can feel yet today.
In this world you left a mark in the next you recieve your reward.
God Speed Jo Edward
