    Grandma, God truly broke the mold when he created you. You were larger than life, you did things your way. You loved us all so very much and I will never stop missing you. All my love until I see you again.

    I just bought a few glass and thought of googling reamers and Edith's name. I knew Edith for about 10 years before she moved from Long Island. I sold her some reamers and met at hundreds of garage sales. She not only invited me to see her home and collection, she invited me to do one of her Election day garage sales, on Bryant. I made money and was very grateful. I had a shop in Bellmore for 15 years and started the flea market at the Bellmore Train Station 22 years ago. It's still going strong. Edith would have loved it as much as she loved Copiague and the 110 drive in. She was such a helpful and generous spirit. I still tell people about her rainbow wall of reamers in the den.
