Elva was my next door neighbor for over fifty-four years. She was also my sister-in-law. I could not ask for a better neighbor. She was always there if needed. God has added another jewel to his Heavenly home. I am thankful for the memories, the great good times, and being able to share so much of my life with Elva. I know that she is with her beloved Robert, and they are rejoicing in Heaven together. Although I am sorry to say goodbye, I know she is in a better place. I will always cherish her memory.
