    Dear Elnora’s family, Elnora was a jewel of a lady! So loved the times we sat at the same table and shared stories and snacks…or chatted on the phone…or rode the Van to and from church…or special celebrations! I have been fascinated with all she had her hands in at GPBC…all the years she has been a member! She was a fiesty lady…loved playing BINGO! Several of our chats centered around her “winnings”! Her last days were so hard on her…but you know what…when one of us walked into her room…she always shared that special smile…and would say…or when she could not say…mouthed our name! Sharp as a tack…all the way to the end! I will miss you, Elnora!

    My deepest sympathy to each of you. May the love and the memories that you shared be of comfort to you. Our heavenly Father promises that he will restore life to many who have fallen asleep in death. He assures us that the day is soon to come in which the tears of sorrow of death will be no more.

    John 5:28,29 Psalms 37:29
