My Auntie Elva was a second Mom to me...
I was the “brat” from Minnesota who spent the best summer vacations ever with the family!
I was blessed to have been able to spend some special time with her and my cousin Vickie over the last few years...we had fun and I will miss her...

I have known Elva for six decades! We have shared many fun hours playing golf , playing bridge and fishing on Wister Lke. Elva was one of the kindest people I have known. After my Mom passed Elva and Vic invited me to holiday dinners and the list goes on of the thoughtfulness of Elva.
