My heart smiles when I think of Uncle Elbert. He was such a warm and embracing person. He cared for people! He was genuine. He was one of my dad’s best friends. They may not have seen each other that often but the bond and connection the two of them shared was real.

Kilgore clean was a real thing in our home growing up. Aunt Betty and Uncle Elbert knew how to clean! If they took on a task of cleaning something you knew it was going to be as clean as if it were new. When we would have people over if my mom or dad said it needs to be Kilgore clean that meant an extra measure or expectation of cleanliness was required.

I will love and miss Uncle Elbert ~ not an Uncle by blood but by choice!

Dear Millie and family,
It’s with a very sad heart I write this! Elbert was such a kind person! Every Sunday for years he met me coming in the doors at WPBC, always with the biggest smile! During football season he always had a comment on the games that weekend. He will be missed. I’m sorry I can’t make it to the visitation or funeral but I will see you soon Millie! Love and prayers!
