She was the most kindest and sweetest person I have ever known. I met her and the family when I was only thirteen at a camp ground in Umatilla for my birthday party. That's when the magic stated . The family took me in like I was one of them. She is the only one to this day my mother would let me catch a bus and come to Newberry to spend some time with them. What A GREAT PERSON. Mom Mcelroy your at piece now. I LOVE YOU. YOUR IN GOD'S HANDS NOW.
