every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted; A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing…" Ecclesiastes 3:1-5 Robert Lee Edwards was born September 11, 1935 in Darlington County, South Carolina, a son of the late Simon and Ethel Lee Lucas Edwards.
