I will always remember the pure joy on his face riding in the car, with the window down and his nose in the air. I'll forever remember the crazy way he would run around the living room when I got home -- like a little quarterback.., and how he loved his favorite toy, Priscilla. Elvis loved our many trips to the lakes; always willing to jump in the kayak and go on another adventure. But most of all, I'll always remember his sweet kisses every night before bed. Elvis was born on March 1, 1997, and left this world on March 31, 2010. He was such a joy! Elvis healed my heart and gave my husband and me so much love. He was always by my side; for 13 years, we were never apart. These years were filled with wonder and fun. My heart aches for him, Elvis was my world, and I was his. I miss his soft touch, his gentle eyes, his smile, always so patient, always waiting for me. I will carry sweet memories of our time together for the rest of my life. I will never forget Elvis. Although we are apart now, I know Elvis is still with me. Thank you to all of our friends, who loved Elvis too, and most of all thank you, E1vis, for being my best friend. All of my love forever, Shirley Lavelette, W.V.; Colleen Leathers of Fresno; a brother, James "Jim" Azevedo and his wife, Sandy of Marysville and his precious grandchildren, Joshua, Amber, Chase, Allison, Emila and Kaylee. He joins in his eternal home his best friend and loving wife; Virginia "Ginny" Azeve- do, who passed from this life in 2005, and his precious daughter, Lynn, in their eter- nal home with the Lord.
