    Prayers for your family during this time. My mother, Mary Frances James Tull, was Edith’s first cousin. We enjoyed so many James Reunions in Marked Tree. I know there is much rejoicing in heaven.

  2. Michelle PRUIETT, St. Clair, MO says

    I'm so sorry for your loss. She was definitely a special lady who always treated me like family. Always a wonderful Christian example. Joe absolutely loved her, as did everyone that knew her. Prayers for all of you.
