I am so sorry to learn of Edith's death; however, what a long life she had before going to be with our LORD. The last time I saw her was at my brother William's burial in Union Point, next to his first wife, Iris Davis Meeks. I have known Edith and the Davis Family for many years, although it has been years since I have seen any of them. My brother, William (Bill) Meeks, was married to Iris Davis Meeks until her death in the late 1970s. I lived with them in Union Point and attended school there for about a year. Please know that my thoughts and prayers are with all of the family. I think about you often. Betty Meeks O'Neal
