Do that for me.' ' I think Elbert would want that for all of you too. Keep all the beautiful memories and just be happy. Thinking of all of you from oldest to youngest.

Elbert was such a kind, gentle mannered, hard working man. He was so loving to his family and everyone he met. We used to share/celebrate our birthdays together, and always made me feel loved. The world has lost a wonderful man, but Heaven is rejoicing his arrival! You’ll forever be missed!
