We enjoyed so much our visits with Stan and Elnora. She had a clever wit which she used to inject humor into many situations. She loved to watch the old western movies on TV. She loved fishing and camping. She loved growing flowers, and making jewelry. She loved her family, and proudly told us about them. We regret that our visits have been less frequent because of some health challenges that we have experienced this year. We will miss this dear lady! God be with you until we meet again, dear Elnora! We love you!

My sincere condolences to the family and friends, so sorry for your loss. Please find comfort in knowing that God will soon resurrect our dear loved ones (John 5:28-29. Oh how we long for the day when pain, suffering and death will be no more, these former things will have passed away (Revelation 21:3-4).

To Elnora's family, you are in our prayer during this time of sorrow. Terry was a very good friend of mine who I met in the Law Enforcement program at Idaho State University. Elnor's did a very good job in raising Terry and I thank her for it. May God bless those lives that Elnora touched. Elder Terry Felsman, Suva Fiji Mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.
