I am so sorry that I just now learned of Elwood's passing. These are the times when it is so hard to be far away. My heartfelt condolences to all the family. Betty & Elwood were special cousins to my late husband Jim Saunders.

Undoubtedy, one of the best men I've ever known!! I remember as a young man,Elwood, coming to the farm with the tractor trailer to move cows for my dad. We experienced this more than once in our lives, and what a pleasure to behold!! Always a smile on his face,and a true pleasure to work with. Whenever we sold cows, Elwood, was the man dad chose to have move them. A man of integrity, a great teacher, a prime example
