Condolence & Memory Journal

Dear Vera and family. I just read of Elbert's death last night on Facebook. I am so sad to hear it. I remember when he and Miss Bessie moved to Poulan, when he was in the navy--and of course your wedding. I liked Elbert as so many others must have. It's good to have been liked by others and he will be greatly missed. I have had you on my mind since last night when I learned the news. Fondly, Harris
