Soon after starting to church at MFB in 1983, I met Edna Franks. It did not take many conversations to learn that we had much in common--we had gone to the same elementary school! I was eleven years behind Edna, at Gluck Mill School, McCants Junior High, and Girls High (T. L. Hanna now). We had a special "kinship" because of that! I so admired Edna, and enjoyed every chance to talk with her over the years. Now, I enjoy a friendship with her daughter Terri and husband Charles. Edna's love of music shows up in Terri's playing of the flute on those special Sunday morning when she's chosen to help us worship through her ability to play the flute so beautifully, a love of music she inherited from Edna, I'm certain. I mourn her loss with you, her family, and sympathize with you.
