We are paying our respects to a mother, grandmother, sister, friend, cousin, and all-around beautiful person who was also our mother and grandma. Ms. Edna Brown was the BEST mother and grandmother in the entire world, and she even considered other children to be her own because she had a particular love for all children. She even considered other children to be hers because she had a special love for all children.
She was a walking embodiment of love due to the fact that she placed a strong emphasis on conveying to everyone how much she loved them.

She will be deeply mourned by everyone who knew her, but especially by her family and the community she called home on the Westside.
