RE: Fred & Velma
Katie, their DIL was just telling us on FB why she wasn't ever able to stand upright. She was in an accident and injured her back. They look like such a wonderful couple.

RE: Velva Jewell McElwain
It was so good to hear back from you. I absolutely love listening to your stories. You can absolutely add me to facebook, ironically enough.... i use it mostly for genealogy and have tons of pics. What a precious friend you must have been to them. If you look me up, i am under kimberly shields-hannah. Let me know if you have problems finding it. I am looking at my tree now, you are right... i see that Jerry passed away in 2005. Larry and Katie live in Fairfield, IL. Maybe you can connect with Katie on facebook, she is so sweet. Looks like both Jerry and Larry had two kids. Please tell me where you live again? Springfield? I am so sorry, i have a horrible memory at times.

RE: Velva Jewell McElwain
Rhonda, your message and story about Velma and Fred touched my heart. It is so hard when you lose friends such as them. It is so wonderful to hear stories of them and gives me an idea of who they were. What wonderful people. Did you know their kids very well? Keep in contact with them? After my father died in 2007, i yearn to hear stories like this about him. I love the stories of the french fries and the pies, what beautiful beautiful memories. With doing research on all the family in Webster Co, Missouri, i got to go visit there this past summer... my father in law also lives in Springfield, but most of the family lives in Marshfield. You are a a true jewel to share these precious memories with me. It means a lot. What a blessing God gave you to have such special friends like Fred and Velva. I hope to one day have that same gift of friendship with people like that. I have met so many wonderful people through ancestry, and I cherish friendships so much. Time is so short. Thanks so much and blessings to you!

Velva Jewell McElwain
I appreciate you linking her and managing her memorial. May I ask how you knew her. I have been researching the Hannah/McElwain for a little over 4 years. She is a distant relative of my husbands. I love to hear about the people I research. How unfortunate I am not to have met her. I have been doing this so long, i feel like I know them. I have met her daughter in law through a facebook connection. Thanks again.
