I am very sadden to read this obit. I have known this young man since he was a baby. To the family please take comfort in the scriptures and know that death is calle an emeny in the bible and that God has promised to do away with it. Rev. 21:4 states And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” Please take comfort in the Bible.

Wow, where do I begin. Nicholas Edwards aka "Boo" was a very respectful & fun person to be around. He always had a smile on his face & kept them 2 fingers in the air every time he saw me. Never thought I would be saying goodbye so soon, but God sent for another angel. To the Edwards family you guys stay strong & prayed up. You will be missed, until we meet again my friend!

Nick was such a good person. I met Nick in 2001 in Americus. He was such a beautiful person inside and out. He was loved by so many people and will be missed by so many people. I remember our last conversation. :) I would love to make it to the funeral but don't think I have the strength to go. I want to remember him as he was. He is at peace and no longer suffering. John 5:28,29 The hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice (God) and come out. I hope to see him again.

Although I moved away years ago, your absence grows deep in my heart. Words can't even express my sorry right now but I trust God and I know he knew best. Tell all my family I love and miss them but this distance between us is only temporary. We all will meet again someday. I love you, rest on my cousin, rest on.
