My condolences to the entire family. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all at this time. I have many fond memories visiting with Elbert when the "Alabama folks" would visit the "Texas folks" and vice versa. I remember the small pony Elbert had when we were only 6 or 7. Elbert could ride him quite well but we Alabamians could not. How time flies!!!!! Love to all...….
