      Mallie Pew, Elwood was the grandson of Luke and Annie Alford who lived beside your Momma on Eagle Rock Road after Mr. Mallie died. I remember your mom and dad well. Grandmama’s niece Rachel Wall married your brother Ralph.

    He was a master hugger too. He always made me feel loved at Tabernacle where we went for about 5 years or more. My one regret was not going back to see him. He was a bright spot in my life. Thank you for sharing him with us Lek.
