Message: Dear Jim, Sandy, and Elissa, I am so sorry to hear about Edie. I can still see her puttering in the front yard on Cliffmount Dr. She was quite a lady and I have fond memories of my old neighbor. Hang on to all your memories. They are yours forever!Sandy Satell

Message: Dear Jim and family, I was surprised, than saddened, to see Edies familiar smiling face in Wednesdays paper. Although some time has passed since we last spoke, my memories of Edie are vivid to this day. Edie assisted me with holiday concerts for several years when I was teaching music at St. Christopher School in East Hartford, and although we were of different religions, we immediately bonded by sharing our personal stories of faith and family. And of course that meant sharing the laughter, the photos, the recipes of all the fun times we had in common. I was blessed to have known her&.and will always be thankful for her presence in my life. She remains a song in my heart. Toni Mintel

Message: Dear Jim, Elissa and Sandy - I am so very sorry to hear about Edie's passing; what a tremendous example she set for all of us of personal bravery and courage. I distinctly recall coming to your Cliffmount home years ago for a Passover Seder dinner; it was so very beautiful and Edie was such a gracious and caring hostess. Know that you are in my thoughts and prayers; tuck your memories into your hearts where she can be with you always. Love, Kathryn Kircher

Message: Memories of my cousin, Edie We grew up together. Close and constant. Our mothers were sisters  and so we were extensions of that sisterhood. Edie was born a huge spirit, full of song and play, love, and passion for the good life  for everything wonderful and fine. Even as tykes, playing house, while Margy and I  and later Cathy were creating dolly dramas, Edies dolls were planning parties, going on vacations, and having plenty of beautiful babies who, of course, always won baby contests. Edie  a study of earthy warmth, friendliness and charm exuded. While a teen, her feelings about others were deep, powerful and intense. When she liked someone, it was totally and obsessively, if she didnt like them, they did not exist. When she met Jimmy, her faithfulness and loyalty was immediately cemented. This man would become, unquestionably, her best friend, lover, and partner for life  and of course, as she noted, and, the perfect father for my children. I remember Edies words during our great girl gab session soon after Elissa came into the world. Although glowing and sharing her adoration for her new babe freely, she was holding a lot of those feelings deep within. Those feelings were so complex and intense that they frightened her. So she tried to ignore them  and the more she tried, the more explosive she became when talking about her new role as mom and the new love that surged. Im bet some of that emotional lava stayed down deep, fueling the parental protection and care that she showed Elissa and Sandy. Unfortunately, time and distance put a major barrier between us as I traveled and lived around the globe and landed in Hawaii. Ive learned as Ive earned each lovely line and wrinkle, that love is in the detail  not in the broad swath of a statement of love, nor in the ritualized contacts. I found that detailed love in Edies consistent and lovely snail-mailed updates on the kids, holiday cards, and family photographs  the love that held us together and extended our relationship as close family. Our last words to each other over the phone a few weeks ago, just as they were for the 60 years of our relationship, were I love you (with a small bunch of the edie-sweedie-linder-pinder sweetisms that we always shared). That love was always pure, of spirit, never had a body, and will live on eternally. I wish I could be there in person to add to the energy and love of the many many people who will there to say abientot to Edie -- and especially to support Jimmy, Elissa, Sandy, Cathy and all our family - but my spirit certainly will be there in full bloom! Below is a poem that I wrote to help me shift from the sadness of losing Edie in this life to the joy of looking forward to eternity: Our Beautiful Edie I watched a sail boat leave the shore today Her sail spreading to the warm winds, big and white, singing to the lapping sea, beautiful, and strong. Through ocean waves I watched her surge until her sail was but a tiny speck at the line where sea and sky converge; And then she was gone. As I thought sadly there she goes. But, gone where? She went only from my sight. Not really gone. But rather beyond, Her sail all along, big and white, singing to the lapping sea, beautiful, and strong. As complete in hull, and sail, and carriage as when she left the shore An still with love, carrying and protecting fully, those she bore. Her presence here was only in my eye, not in her reality. As I thought "there she goes! " on another shore, loud and clear and full of joy stands our family whove sailed that sea, together in eternal love, shouting " Here she comes! "
