I met Elmer when he would shop in Kroger. I have missed seeing him. He was one of a kind. He would always look for me and Mary when he came in. He was a special man. I am sorry for your loss. You are in our thoughts and prayers

God has one fine man in his care. I am so happy that my father was able to introduce us. As kinfolk he was a treasure, as a preacher he was the best and as a teacher- he was full of wisdom. My heartfelt prayer is that God comforts the hearts of those needing comfort. If ever a man is allowed to walk the streets of Heaven, this one was welcomed with open arms. I send my love to my cousins that I may have never met.
