I will always remember Elba as a fun, loving and dancing person. She was elegant and always looked good. She was my mother's sidekick for a while as they both enjoyed the prime of their lives. We spent many hours at her home hanging out with our buddy Diana. She was a good friend to my mother and they never lost touch. She was part of my childhood memories which I will always cherish.

May you rest in peace until you are once again reunited with your loved ones .
