I have always known her. She was a fine lady. She was a mentor to a lot of young women. I always thought Edythe and my sister, Reatha Jenkins-Haas, were perfect preacher’s wives. They are both in heaven now.
Dick and I attended the wedding of Megan and Mark Frazer, Saturday evening in Cape Girardeau. Megan is the daughter of Scott and Missy Richards and granddaughter of Dick and Pauline Richards of Ava.
