Edwina was my grandmothers best friend. I remember her visiting my home when I was growing up. I can still picture her sitting in our living room chatting with my parents and my sister and myself. I only wish that I would have asked her questions and would have received first-hand answers. But being at the ages I was, I missed the greatest opportunity I do recall her saying how she had a small child given to her to take on a lifeboat. I can recall only bits and pieces .
