In memory of " Auntie Elba" Tirado.


On May 1st, 2010 Company A of the 22nd North Carolina Infantry Regiment lost a dear member.  Elba Tirado, known to the company as "Auntie Elba", went to be with her Lord. 
Auntie came to us by way of her Grand Nephew, Sergeant Mark Gonzalez.  Sgt. Gonzalez brought her for a visit at an age where most of us are retiring from re-enacting.  But Auntie loved what she saw and took right to tenting, sleeping in her bedroll on the ground.  Auntie loved to cook and nothing pleased her more than to see the troops enjoying a good meal. 
Auntie always had a twinkle in her eye and a smile on her face and those qualities in camp are going to be missed. 
Auntie, rest in peace, and be assured that we shall never forget you and will always save you a chair in the shade of the fly.  Until we meet again, watch over and protect us as our guardian angel, for you were an angel to us.
