To the family of Mrs. Elda:
Ms. Elda was in my Bible Study for years until Mr. Harry needed her to be with him all the time.
She will be greatly missed for her elegance and kindness and honesty! She loved The Lord and was faithful to His church, bible study and fellowship that we had! For a couple of years since Mr. Harry passed we lost touch with each other and would see each other from time to time. I am so sorry to see this but rejoicing that she is now with her Savior, Jesus Christ and Mr. Harry! She loved her boys and grand kids!
I am praying for y'all and believing God will comfort you in your loss. Such a sweet lady and sister in The Lord!
Blessings, Mimi Crabtree
