Rosa and family,

My deepest sympathies go out to you all.

While I didn't really know Elvin personally, having only met him once or twice, I know how much of a foundation he was for the family from stories from Rick and Reina.

Many prayers to the whole family in these difficult times. Please call if there is anything I can help with.
