Elbert worked for me at Lewis Memorial Park in the early 80’s. Good worker and friend.
So sorry to hear about Cedrick. You and Scott and all the family will be in my prayers. I always appreciated Cedrick for his sense of humor and his loyalty to God and his family. Please let me know if there is anything I can do for you. God keep you in His care. You can always be assured of His love for you.
With deepest sympathy,
