To the Family, so sorry for your loss. Hope you will be comforted in knowing that Elvin has the prospect of being resurrected, healthy (in the flesh), to Paradise Earth just as Jehovah God has promised. In fact , the vast majority will enjoy everlasting life right here on earth as God had intended from the beginning. God's Kingdom will do this under the rule of Jesus Christ. READ John 5:28, 29, Job 14:14, 15,Psalms 37:29,Matthew 6:9,10 and Revelation 21:2-4
My prayers are with Ricky and John.my God wrap his arms around you and comfort you. I love you both. Uncle Al was a great man. I loved his laugh as it was so infectious. I will always remember how he called me and Missy “sis” all the time.

Thank you for all the fond memories. One thing I always loved was to hear you tell me all about the Midland Valley railroad and see how excited you got telling me about your childhood memories of the yard by the house.
I will carry those memories with me forever.
