To all the Cassady family, the four children my dad, their uncle, described as the best of the best, I am so sorry for your loss. And I'm sorry I found out just today - know that I'm holding you all close to my heart, and if Daddy had been able, he'd have been there for you. We hold you up as an example of all that is good. Praying for peace, Edie
