Haha! The ending was delightful. I would've loved to hang out with Edna. She was my kind of woman. Good writing. I love it. God bless.
Oh my! This was one of the funniest and best stories I've read in ages! With your vivid descriptions, I was right in the middle of the parade. I'm glad I moved in time to avoid Edna's ashes! Purely delightful! Truth is funnier than fiction.
Man plans and God laughs! I think Edna would have appreciated this! Lovely story.
I could see it coming when you described how the urn was being transported. Oh what a sight that must have been!
I'm sure Edna will be remembered for her life and ashes.
Maybe Edna would have loved being the star of the the parade.

Your wring was spot on. I felt I was riding along in the parade with everyone else.

I just horses weren't too far behind.

A true story.
Powerful story!
You did such a nice job of introducing us to Edna and showing us how much she meant to her community. And what an ending.
Thank you for introducing us to Edna and her indomitable spirit.
Congratulations on your 1st place in EC. It was a well-deserved award.

Through your writing, your characters indelible spirit and determination was brought to life.

Vivid images of the sights and sounds of the parade honoring her.
This reminded me of the wonderful Midford and Father Tim stories. Very well told and endearing! Congratulations!
