Noma Bradshaw Edwards beloved wife, mother, grandmother and sister went home on October 4, 2008.
Your tiny body exemplified a lifetime of love in the rarest form, a tender soul emanating from your touch. With kids at your knee and a guitar in hand, out rose harmony that shared dreams of innocence. Your love for children proved impermeable and babies found safety in your arms. Games were your outlet with contenders learning early of your luck. Our getaway weekends will be empty and the music we sang will be silenced with your absence.
