    Chuck and Debbie, I am so sorry to hear of your loss. I Rembert having lots of fun at your mom and dad’s place. The funnest time was when you replaced the floor in my car with license plates. Your Dad was a very good man.
    Elroy God Bless and God Speed. May you forever rest in peace.

    Life gets in the way and families do not always stay connected but, as a first cousin,the memories are there.. As a child I would go to Elroy’s home on various holidays and enjoy a full house and refreshments. His dad, my uncle Howard, and my mom, Mildred, were brother and sister. Sending my condolences to the extended family.
