Connie, Cindy, and Tracy, I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your Mother. I just found out. I will never forget how good Elna and you all were to MacKenzie and all of us. I loved to hear Elna laugh. She always seemed to enjoy life to the fullest. While family and friends are sad, Elna and her loved ones in heaven are rejoicing. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.

Connie, Tracy, and Cindy, I’m not sure how old I was. I would stay at your house with your mom, as long as she would let me. Connie you were in school but Tracy and Cindy, were not. I loved you mother and dad so much, and I’m so sorry to hear about your mom. I was so skinny and I would call mama on the phone to see if I could stay, then Elna would let me sleep in her pajama bottoms. She was bigger than me and I think we had to pin them all the way around. I loved your grandmother, Lois, Frank and his family, and I can’t remember all of them. They were like everybody else. Just down to earth, and your mom never miss any time going to church. I would stand beside her. She would always WINK at me, laugh and sing. I’m not sure if you girls will remember me, but all your family were loved by everybody there in that little Hollar. Girls I have so many good memories of your mom. Just know she is in Heaven now, Winking at all of us and SMILING. Love Debbie Dean
