Elvin Ray Brinson

You are sadly missed, not a day, minute or second goes by that I don’t miss and think of you. Words cannot explain. You are always in my heart. I keep your picture by my bed. Your face is the last thing at night and the first thing seen in the morning by your baby girl, Vanessa. You are missed by your family, Les, Chubby, Mike Vanessa, your six grandkids, one great-grandchild. Happy birthday – until we meet again. We love you.
