Mark, Faye, Dorothy, Tom , Linda and Dianna,

David and I are praying for you in this difficult time. I know that Aunt Elva lived a very long and fruitful life, but it is still hard to say "goodbye" to those we love. At least we are assured that we will all be together in the Father's presence. Aunt Elva was a very caring soul - until quite recently she always sent me a birthday card. How very much I appreciated that! "For now we see through a glass darkly, but then, face to face".
