Elbert was a true man of God. He was loving and generous with his time. His love not only touched his close friends but the family of those friends. Elbert’s memory continues on through those he touched and I look forward to once again seeing him at home in Heaven.

We’ve been searching for you on the net, but didn’t expect this. Elbert was a wonderful man. Tom still calls him “Jackson”. Hope the rest of the family is okay.

He was a true man of God. Searching for the path God had chosen for him and his family. Always enjoyed listening to him and hearing his stories. While our hearts are breaking … The Heavens are singing and praising. Sarah Gibson Reid

Dear Jo,
I am totally devastated after learning of Elbert’s passing away and I have no words to express to you, Brenda, Betsy and Brett how deeply sorry I am. Tears are rolling down my cheeks as of this writing. Elbert and you have been the best that ever happened to me by shaping my life during my adolescent years. Elbert was a man full of love and showed us all a unique tenacious perseverance in order to achieve our goals. He learnt and mastered Spanish being a young adult and led a spanish-speaking congregation in Peru. He proved his naysayers wrong. His cherry “hello” and lovely smile will be with me always. Elbert taught me many things throughout his long tenure in my country that I shall always cherish. Jo, may the Lord give you solace to mitigate the passing of Elbert. Love Always. Pepe

Lucy says:

I always remember my uncle and I’ll take Elbert present in my heart. I am grateful to God for sending a man to serve our Peru.
