Sorry Ed and I can’t be with you but you’re in our thoughts and prayers. Aunt Elda was such a nice person and a great aunt. She was always cheerful and upbeat. It’s her smile I’ll remember.

In 1985 we visited Mt.Clinton, VA with my Dad. The house Aunt Elda was born in is still there, now occupied by the current Methodist minister.

We cannot be with you in person at this time, but please know that you are in our thoughts and prayers.

Aunt Elda was a fantastic person and I want to share with you one event with us.

Sam was very sick in the hospital, the girls were very little 1960 and on the day he was operated on I was alone in the waiting room, when the elevator doors opened and Aunt Elda stepped out and opened her arms to me. She told me I couldn’t be alone and she was with me all day giving me support and love. That was the kind of person she was, even though lots of memories of her laughing and joking, this was a serious side. Sam and I never forgot her concern and love for us and at a time when we needed someone she was there for us.

She will be missed so much – not only by you, but her neices and nephews – she loved us too…

Love – Sam and Lucy
