    To the Edwards Family,

    My heart aches for each of you at the loss of Woody but know that he is at peace in the hands of God. I remember babysitting Paulette and Woody as small children. May God keep each of you strong, full of faith and with the knowledge that he is now with Pauline and Richard.
