    Fondly remember Edgar and Iris from the good old days when we joined up with them and Alfred and Vilda Jones on a great tour of Nashville and worlds Fair in Knoxvill and Memphis .What a fun filled trip we had and yes Edgar done rock line and cat work for me after as well. Always a great man to deal with.He came to take back the cat and dump truck one evening and Wendy sent home a few dozen fresh buns as Iris had been in hosp a few days . POOR Edgar DIDNT SEE THEM in the dark and they made a great seat cushion. What a laugh we all had about them and he said they still sure tasted good anyways.We will always remember him and your mom as great people . Our sincere ccondolences and prayers to your family at this time may he RIP. BRENDAN and Wendy Harty..

    Sandra, Greg and Gerry and families…so sorry to hear of Edgar’s passing. We made good friends with them when we lived at del Bonita for three years. He always had you laughing! I was very pregnant and uncomfortable in 1972 so Iris and Edgar took us for a,drive to Browning, Montana thru the looking glass pass….he said the drive there will get you to have that baby….he was right..the road was up and down and around and I was so sick when we got home and in a few hours we were on our way to the hospital with him and Iris following us! We sure had a lot of fun with Edgar and Iris,over the years and it has been so good to see Gerry at our post office here in Warner and remember all the fun we had. They were a great family.
