  4. That's my wonderful Dad! Loved this post Mom...a well-deserved tribute!

  5. You, Marie and the rest of your family must be very proud of your loved one who gave so much. We are free today because of men like Elbert.


  6. That is a very special memorial tribute to your late husband. God Bless his soul---and thanks to him (and all of the others) who did so much to provide us with the freedoms we enjoy...

    Hope you have a great Memorial Day Weekend. It's going to be a hot one here (temps. in the 90's)... Yipes!!!!!


  7. What an amazing naval career - I know you were all so proud of him. (Love Marie's comment!).

    I too join in thanking all who did, and still do, serve in the military to keep us free from oppression. We are a fortunate country but it's sad that this requires losing far too many men and women to keep us safe from harm.

    Enjoy Memorial Day, your dear husband will be close in thought I know.
    Hugs - Mary
