    You put so many smiles on our faces. Your sense of humor made us laugh and was sometimes downright naughty! You left before anyone could even say goodbye, which was just you’re style. You were loved, and you are missed.

    Sorry to hear this. Elvinia was my aunt to a family I barely knew. Her brother, Bernard was my dad and before he passed away, I was lucky enough to met her and a few others. God speed, Elvinia! Until we get to see each other once again!
