    It was my pleasure to know Colonel Edwards through my friendship with Roberta. She had profound respect and love for her father. We are saddened by the losses that the Edwards family has suffered, and we offer our prayers on behalf of Laura and her family.

    Dear Mrs. Laura Edwards,

    I only met Bob twice. Once at Widlord Thomas’s graduation and once after Roberta died. He seemed to me to be such a steady, caring, quiet, compassionate, but firm man who loved his wife and children. I know you will miss him terribly and I am praying for you during this difficult time. Just try to remember the happy times that you had together with him and your children. May God bless you.

    Richard Taylor, Jr.
