I took care of Elverna for several days while she was in the hospital. I was her day shift aide often. I got to know her, laugh with her, talk to her and share stories.. She told me about her little dog Chloe. She told me about her friend who gave her a beautiful BIBLE she truly loved...She got moved and I had planned a visit on Monday to see how she was doing. As I have an appointment in the area where she was staying. Then at work I saw she had passed. I was so surprised...so sorry I couldn't be at her wake, I would of loved to see all the pictures. But when I saw this memorial and the video and pictures...It was the most beautiful memorial I had even seen...WHAT a loving tribute to a beautiful, beautiful woman. She is now at PEACE and I have been PRAYING for her. REST IN PEACE DEAR ELVERNA....As I've told you " I love ya friend" and you'd say...I know you do. Hugs...xoxo....Linda
