Bonnie and I would like to send our condolences to Leland and the family. We have spent many Tall Cedar events with this loving couple and Bonnie always appreciated Edith’s help with the Cedars Annual Easter Egg hunt and attendance of their Christmas luncheon. She will be missed by her Cedarettes and friends.
