    So sad to hear this news, condolences & prayers to all the family. I have such wonderful memories over the years of Harvelyn & Elbie., watching the boys grow up & seeing what a loving family they were & how hard Elbie worked providing for his family! He was a quiet man but always ready with a smile & a hello & how are you. He will be missed by his family & all his friends, but he’s with his beloved Harvelyn & all his family that has gone on before him. But we will see him again! God Bless all of you.
