A bright and beautiful soul has left this earth! I remember Eliva at so many baby showers and family gatherings. She was always smiling, always glowing, always ready to love and accept. Mamma thought the world of her, as did I!

I am so very sorry for this loss to her children and her husband, my Uncle Joel. I know how you are hurting, I am keeping you ever in my thoughts and prayers.

You were so very loved on this earth, Sweet Elvia. Heaven has gained the sweetest of angels.
