Testimonial about my mom and my Uncle Fred:
Loved and cherished by her family and friends, my mom was an incredibly special, courageous, strong lady. Her class and grace lit up the room, and many have said “Edwina is the nicest person I’ve ever met.” My mom was extraordinarily caring, supportive and wise – I am humbled to be her daughter. I pray and live through her spirit every day of my life.
My mom will be deeply missed and her memory and teachings will most certainly live on through her children and future generations to come.
My Uncle Fred is a selfless medical professional and brother who loves my mother beyond compare. The money I help raise to contribute to Uncle Fred will be a small token of appreciation to a man to whom I can never repay. The care and medical leadership he provided made all the difference in my mother’s health and longevity since her initial diagnosis over 20 years ago of breast cancer. Uncle Fred and my dad provided care to my mother in her last days which was nothing short of a blessing from God.
Nicole Yue, Edwina's daughter
