Elda, Janel, Bryan and families – we were so sorry to hear of the passing of Ivor. He was a good man and a blessing to many. We always enjoyed our interactions with him. Praying for God’s comfort and strength as you go through this difficult season of loss.

Dear Elda and family,  Was so sad to hear of Ivors passing. I  know that he is up there praising the Lord and maybe Bryan is playing the piano for him!  I have always had a special place in my heart for you and Ivor, I know that Bryan did as he spoke of you both.  I hope that I could come visit with you whenever it is convenient.  Love and hugs,  Laura Davis

Elda, I am sorry for your loss. I do not know if you remember me from The House of the Lord. Do you remember Leon Zimmerman or Henry Bowman? I was friends with them. And we appreciated the Groff girls and we moved on the Lord’s House with Mark and Abbie. Love, Paul

Elda and family
I am so sorry for your loss. I was remembering and talking about working with Ivor the day before, I saw his obituary. I did not know you live in Marietta now. I live in Marietta now also. Maybe we can get together to remember. Elda, if you can, email me.

My deepest sympathy to Elda & all the family. I remember him from Worship Center, but also from when he worked at Grocery Outlet(or was it Amelia’s then?). May God comfort & strengthen you with His great peace, love and the hope we have through a Jesus for life eternal in heaven with Him.

Elda and Jones family I am sorry for your loss. Ivor was so loved by so many. I had the pleasure of living down the hall from him and Elda for better than five years. We had so many fun times. So I am blessed with many memories. God Bless you all !!
