From: Pepper Mandoli
Relation: Edi is my cousin

In her youth, when Edi’s and my family lived on the same street, Edi would visit us almost every day. As a boy, I remember Edi’s cheerful laughter. It was always a pleasure to hear and see her in those days before she moved to Nelson. Edi had a sparkling and radiant personality. She was naturally a bright and effervescent person.
