  1. Elva, rather Mrs. Plett, was my good friend’s mom! In later days, in visiting with Elva, I discovered what a kind, caring woman she was! It was a joy to visit with Elva and Andy during the Bethesda days, with my dad being the next door neighbor!
    A life well lived; Earthly life complete, eternal life begins.

  2. For some reason I had recently often thought of Elva, and Andy. My parents very much enjoyed visiting with them. Elva was a beautiful, warm, and caring woman and mother with a positive attitude. What a blessed reunion these cousins will be having in heaven!!
