Elda.  A uniquely beautiful and influential person.  An eternal friend.

Elda with her husband Darhl


“Don’t let your hearts be troubled.  You believe in God; now trust me too.  In my Father’s bed and breakfast are many rooms; if that weren’t true, I would tell you. I have gone there to prepare a room for you.  I know you’ll enjoy the fluffy robe, the fresh-cut flowers, the pot of tea and the chocolate on your pillow. And now that your room is ready, I have come back to take you there so that you can be at home with me.” Jesus in John 14 (my paraphrase for Elda’s interment)
